The HOME competition 2019, organized by architectural initiative arch out loud, has released its winning projects. The annual challenge that pushed the limits of adaptability and innovation, asked designers “What is the future of HOME?” Gathering proposals from all over the world, the challenge was approached from three different perspectives: innovation, adaptability, and pragmatism. The challenge that initiated the conversation about the first and most important architectural product, home, invited designers to rethink the shelter and explore different horizons in order to develop a futuristic idea of how it can evolve. Participants considered many factors while imagining their proposals like the impact of global population shifts, the proximity of major cities to coastlines, new materials and building techniques, the rise of co-housing, tiny homes, smart houses and marketplaces like Airbnb.
