Call for Entries: Rebuilding Iraq's Liberated Areas: Mosul's Housing
Call for Entries:  Rebuilding Iraq's Liberated Areas: Mosul's Housing

Tamayouz Excellence Award is delighted to invite students, architects, and designers worldwide to design a prototype for affordable housing for the post-Daesh city of Mosul, which can be easily replicated with the objective of increasing the capacity of housing in the city and providing a practical and inspiring solution for returning refugees and internally displaced. he conditions for returning refugees and internally displaced are extremely challenging. The question of how to support those who wish to return to their homeland will become extremely pressing. Limited resources in terms of finance and land mean that carefully considered material and spatial responses are needed.

Participants are asked to propose a solution for the Mosul’s upcoming housing crisis, which will affect the city as more neighborhoods will be freed and internally displaced persons and refugees will start to return.

No minimum size or amount of residential units per block is specified. The proposals should be flexible enough to adapt to various sizes with different inhabitant capacity requirements.
The designs should also be adaptable, allowing adjustments to be made in order to suit different residential capacity requirements. It is required to provide a detailed scheme of the typical unit(s) and the principle of their arrangement in large groups.

Participants are permitted to choose any location within the city of Mosul for their proposal.
