Collective Habitat is a competition for students and professionals which seeks to produce ideas to densify areas in or near the centers of 5 Chilean cities with collective housing. The goal is collect innovative architecture proposals that offer access to housing for middle and lower class families in well-served urban areas of Iquique, Valparaíso, Santiago, Concepción and Puerto Montt.

Only three A3 digital sheets are needed plus a 200 words summary. Proposals must be collective housing projects for middle and lower class families; they also could incorporate additional uses if the participant wants. There is no restriction in scale or materials, or location except to be located in one of the 5 cities in this competition in or near to the center of the city. Participants can develop the site they want for their projects.

The winner proposal's author will receive a two week tour to the Netherlands, Belgium and The Venice Biennale 2016. Also, the best 50 projects will be recognized in a book of the competition results and an exhibition with projects and interviews with the designers at the Contemporary Arts Museum of Santiago (MAC).

The competition is hosted by the Department of Architecture of the University of Chile and it is part of ‘LC50: The Human Dimension of Architecture,’ a series of activities which commemorates the 50th anniversary of Le Corbusier death. The competition has been organized by Grupo Arquitectura Caliente with the help of sponsorship from the Ministry of Housing and Urbanism (MINVU), the National Council of Culture and Arts (CNCA), the Fondation Le Corbusier, the Contemporary Arts Museum of Santiago (MAC), the Architects Association of Chile, the Architects Offices Association of Chile (AOA), Docomomo Chile, and Plataforma Arquitectura and ArchDaily as media partner.
