3rd Earth Architecture Competition

Nka Foundation is issuing a challenge to designers, architects and builders to use their creativity to come up with innovative designs for modest, affordable houses that can be built locally to replace the rural mud house type. The challenge is to design a mud house type of about 2400 sq feet that sleeps 8 to 10 persons to be built on a plot size of 80 x 100 feet. The construction site will be Abetenim Arts Village, near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. The building should be designed for use by either musicians, theatre artists, potters, sculptors, painters, textile artists, designers, writers, or media arts practitioners. Total costs of constructing the design entry must not exceed $7,000 (USD) for materials and labor; land value is excluded from this price point.

Here is where to register: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/3rd-earth-architecture-competition-tickets-18987241350 and submit your design entry via mudhousedesign@mail.com For additional information, see the competition discussion board: http://nkaprojects.boards.net/thread/34/designing-arts-2015 or contact info@nkafoundation.org / http://www.nkafoundation.org
