Call for Entries: Urbanarium's Missing Middle Competition

The Urbanarium is proposing an open design competition to develop and present exciting options for addressing Metro Vancouver’s affordability and social health challenges, with outstanding design and social innovation. There are four study areas, one each in Vancouver, Port Coquitlam, Burnaby and Surrey. Applicants will be assigned one of the study areas randomly. Each study area is around four blocks in size and competitors will select one or two single-family lots to design and provide some contextual assessment based on the study area and municipal plans and by-laws.

“Cities throughout Metro Vancouver are grappling with how we can massively scale up ‘missing middle’ housing options to meet our housing affordability challenges, while also maintaining the livability and character of our neighborhoods,” said Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson.

“Urbanarium’s design competition is a great way to bring new ideas to the table, while engaging the public at the same time. I look forward to seeing what comes forward on how we can expand missing middle housing across the region and appreciate Urbanarium’s work to make this happen.”
