A House in Luanda: Patio and Pavillion International Competition

A House in Luanda: Patio and Pavillion International Competition

The Lisbon Architecture Triennale, which is going to happen from the 14 October to the 16 January 2011, launchs now an International Competition: “A House in Luana: Patio and Pavillion”.

The aim of this architecture competition is to design a single family dwelling that is radically cheap to build for Luanda, a city which is under extreme demographic pressure and is undergoing an intense process of transformation, and that is suited to the cultural, economic and social circumstances of the area.

The objective is to select the best proposal for the design of a prototype of a family unit which leads to a patio, with a low construction cost, aimed at severely deprived families, typically consisting of 7-9 people (Parents, 3 children and 2 grandparents or Parents, 5 children, 2 grandparents), in an area of flat topography, located within the city limits of Luanda.

Deadline for submission is May 3. For more details, click here (updated link, Apr 27th).
