Building Trust International have just announced their 8th design competition which is in association with the United Nations Development Programme and the Phnom Penh Special Economic Zone. The competition entitled 'Affordable Housing Design Challenge' challenges architects, designers and engineers to submit an innovative design proposal for new affordable housing for low income workers in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. These new units should be well-designed, sustainable and most importantly improve the quality of life of the intended residents and the surrounding community. More than just housing, this new project should build a future for workers and their families in Cambodia.
Building Trust international will work alongside competition partners, local government and the winning team to build the winning design. The winning team will not only have their design constructed but will also receive a US$20,000 cash prize fund with 4 honourable mentions receiving US$5000 each.
Please note this competition is free to enter and the prize fund is US$40,000.
