ArchiFest 2009: Design Competition: New Ideas for Recyclable HousingDesign Competition: New Ideas for Recyclable Housing
A common notion of ‘emergency housing’ is it has to be absolutely temporary, very low cost and thus very often of ‘low quality’. Hundreds of charitable organizations are spending money during the disasters or in other causes making temporary houses which actually don’t help the victims at all in a long run. This competition gives a challenge to design an emergency temporary shelter which will eventually allow reusing the material and structures for a permanent house later.
The co-organizer of the competition is Habitat for Humanity which is an international charitable organization focusing on providing housing solutions to the needy of all race, language, religion or nationalities. And the organization has thus been focused on providing permanent housing solutions.

The basic goal of the competition is to obtain a design for a prototype housing that can be implemented on actual disaster relief sites. The primary idea is about the design of a temporary shelter for housing victims post crisis, which can then be later “recycled” (- converted or incorporated) into permanent housing structures for these victims.

Eligibility: The competition is open to all architect, designers, students and members of the public either individually or as a team.
Schedule: Registration deadline: 11 September, Submission deadline: 1st October 2009 by 12 noon.
Registration: There’s no registration fees. Registration is mandatory and the registration documents can be obtained by emailing to
Submission: Submission will be via postage mail or directly at the SIA office
