Winners of the Bay Bridge House Student Design Competition
Posted: Thursday, October 31, 2013 |

With a total of 73 entries from 37 schools around the world, the winners have finally been revealed for the Bay Bridge House Student Design Competition. Architecture and design students had to develop a modern, self-sustainable house made from the scraps of the soon-to-be-demolished eastern span of the historic Oakland Bay Bridge in the California Bay Area.

Fourteen submissions made it to the final round before the winners were chosen by the Board Members of the BBH, community voting, and industry expert judges.

The winners are:

  • Overall: "Hanging House" by Lee Ka Chun and Ngan Ching Ying (The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture)
  • Board Members winner: "An Invisible Triangle" by Qazi Shamsud Tamzeed (Chittagong University of Engineering & Technology)
  • Community Vote: "The Bay Bridge House” by Romain Caba (University of Kansas / National superior school of architecture of Paris Val de Seine, France)
  • Honorable Mention: "Reclaimed Lookout" by Chris Bennett (Harvard GSD)
  • Honorable Mention: "Pier House" by Kateřina Krupičková and Gabriela Králová (AAAD)

Overall winners Lee Ka Chun and Ngan Ching Ying received the Bay Bridge House trophy, which was specially made from the demolished S curve of the Bay Bridge. They will also work with the BBH project team to have their design ideas realized.
