Ecohouse Student Design Competition 2004

Ecohouse Student Designs Wanted from around the Globe.

Architectural Press and Teachers in Architecture in conjunction with Circle 33 Housing Group, are proud to present the 2004 Design Competition For An Ecohouse. This competition is running for the second time in 2004; last year over 100 entries from 30 countries saw a winner from Scotland defeat entries from Argentina in second, Libya in third, USA, Turkey, Russia and Vietnam, as well as other fine submissions from Western Europe and the rest of the world.

THE COMPETITION
The challenge we are setting you is to design an Ecohouse for your own home town, wherever it is.
The two key aims are to make it:
a) Comfortable, with areas of real 'thermal delight'
b) A real 21st century building, safe from climate change, able to survive
without relying on a great deal of fossil fuels.

DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS
You are to design an Ecohouse for a family of two adults and two children. The house should have three bedrooms.
· The site and location are of your choice but should be concisely described on your entry
· The site should be in your own home area so you understand the climate and the local architecture instinctively
· The house should be around 180 square meters in floor plan size for internal rooms and any height, form, materials and style you like can be used
· The submission must explain the 'Ecodesign' ideas on which the design of the house is based
· The house should be demonstrably comfortable in summer and winter

WHO IS ELIGIBLE
A student, or group of students in a School of Architecture.
