Call for Entries: 'Re-Defining Home: Home Today, Home Tomorrow Design Challenge'

We know people overwhelmingly want to stay living in their homes and communities for as long as possible. But, livability isn’t about ageing. It is about comfort, convenience, safety and options throughout one’s life. Yet, people tend to buy or live in homes based on their present-day circumstances. We can start to change that… one home design at a time.

To that end, this competition challenges architects, designers and allied professionals to create new standards in housing concepts so people can stay in their home as they travel through various life stages. Help alter the paradigm and re-imagine Home so it changes with a person’s needs, as they evolve in life. That’s what Re-defining Home: Home Today, Home Tomorrow is all about, and why it is so important.

Put aside any knowledge, assumptions, and beliefs of how housing exists today. Think beyond to new models that may not exist and bring creativity and brainstorming to how we can adapt to the same home environment as our needs change over time. Truly universal design is about appealing to the mainstream, not a specific audience segment or community. Read the brief to learn more.
