The Architectural Foundation of British Columbia (BC) has announced the five finalists of the 100 Mile House Competition. Similar to the well-known 100 Mile Diet, the 100 Mile House challenges participants to design a 1200-square-foot home using only materials and systems that are made, manufactured and/or recycled within 100 miles of the City of Vancouver. Many have questioned whether the 100 Mile House is a plausible solution in today’s modern cities (check out: The 100 Mile House: Innovative ‘Locatat’ or Just Plain Loca?). Be your own judge and review the finalists after the break.

1st Prize: MYCO HOME by Tony Osborn (Vancouver, Canada)

“We can reduce the region’s waste, in-crease energy efficiency, contribute to food independence, create affordable housing, teach people skills, and strengthen com-munities with a building system that is made, used and recycled right here.” – Tony Osborn

2nd Prize: Zero E House by Neil Burford, Alex Pearson, Joseph Thurrott Architects (Dundee, Scotland)

“It uses both active and passive environmental technologies to achieve net zero energy use. Its external rainscreen skin, protecting a Passivhaus envelope, has been designed to be interchangeable to suit contexts, legislation, and material availability. All major materials and components of this net zero house can be sourced locally from the 100 mile radius of Vancouver’s city centre.” – Alex Pearson

3rd Prize: Won Jin Park (New York, USA)

“The house is small, simple in form and material palette, to make the house affordable, sustainable, energy efficient. At the same time, the house responds to local context and climate with the use of locally manufactured concrete masonry block, reclaimed Douglas-fir wood slats and many sustainable strategies including solar panels, geothermal heating, radiant floor, passive cooling, green roof, living wall and permeable paving.” – Won Jin Park
