Investigation of contextual, cultural, and life cycle flows offers a critical filter for visualizing innovative future housing strategies. Established in 2010, the annual d3 Housing Tomorrow competition has grown to become a leading voice in alternative residential architecture and one of the most notable awards in speculative, performance-based housing design. Recently published in London-based Wiley-Blackwell AD journal's theme issue 'The New Pastoralism: Landscape into Architecture' as a leading example of ecological design innovation, the d3 Housing Tomorrow competition recognizes exemplary ideas that redefine housing through the implementation of advanced programs, technologies, materials, and social interventions that engage the broadest innovations in housing.
The d3 Housing Tomorrow competition for 2014 invites architects, designers, engineers, and students to collectively explore, document, analyze, transform, and deploy innovative approaches to residential urbanism, architecture, interiors, and designed objects.
The d3 Housing Tomorrow competition allows designers freedom to approach their creative process in a scale-appropriate manner, from large-scale master planning endeavors, to individual building concepts, to notions of the interior realm. Although there are no restrictions on site, scale, program, or residential building typology, proposals should carefully address their selected context.
