Cambodian Sustainable Housing

International Open Design Competition

Final date for registration – 15th December 2012
Closing date for all submissions – 15th January2013

In partnership with Karuna Cambodia, Habitat for Humanity & the Cambodian Society of Architects (CSA) Building Trust are looking for designs that can provide a sustainable future for housing in the South-east Asian country.

Any proposal will have to keep below a budget of $2000 and deal with the yearly flooding that effects most residential areas. The winning design will be built by Habitat for Humanity Cambodia and will influence the way they build housing in the region.

This competition is a real chance to make a difference to a large group of working Cambodians lives. We are in discussion with other charitable organisations working in the region and hope that through the project we can raise the standards and create a sustainable agenda for future development.

Although the competition only asks for a house design the implications of the project are great. This competition represents a real chance for contestants to make a difference and challenge a host of issues that relate to the environment, flooding, living standards and the construction process.


Announcement of winners to be posted on on 15th March 2013
