The AIA Small Project Practitioners (SPP) invites architects and architecture students to submit design ideas to the 2015 SPP Small Project Design Competition – POP-UP 2015: “A Safe Space.” In this unique design competition, submitters are asked to design a discreet, compact and efficient shelter for the homeless. The fully constructed and completed winning design will be donated to the local non-for-profit partner, The Mad Housers, for use by their clients and program participants.
Winners will be announced in February 2015 and will be expected to build and then assemble the winning design in Atlanta where it will be displayed at the convention center, or nearby, during the 2015 AIA National Convention in Atlanta, May 14-16 2015. A travel stipend and construction budget will be provided.
