The 2013 jury included Michael Gonzales of Gonzales Studio, Zui Lig Ng of ZDES, Shawn Lutz of HOK, John Tsai of JT ARC Studio; and Jonathan Wimmel of Prozign Architects. Gonzales, Tsai, and Ng teach design studios and lead seminars at the University of Houston’s Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture.

These are the winning projects:

First Prize: Life on the Ropeway
Die Hu, Boji Hu, & Yang Zhou (China)

Responding to villages threatened by flooding in the rural valleys of Sichuan, China, Life on the Ropeway suspends these villages onto cable systems above their original locations. This alternative housing system is based on the ropeway—it conforms to the natural features of the valley and supports social needs.

 

Second Prize: Biking/Living
Liu Qicai, Yue Kang, & Zuo Long (China)

The top‐down development of China has given rise to the mass production of low‐quality housing. Architects are increasingly losing their ground to real estate developers. Residential corridors are an extension of public life and play an important role in dwelling space and society. Biking/Living adapts Shanghai’s historic Longchang Apartment Building into nine new unit types which propose an adaptive and alternative bike‐focused lifestyle.

Third Prize: City Nomadism
Xijie Ma (China)

City Nomadism compresses living spaces into a compact living machine, integrating a vehicle with living spaces and adapting to the needs of the user. The concept offers an innovative lifestyle alternative, allowing urbanites to live in nature while participating freely in city life.
