FUTURE HOUSE is pleased to announce its third annual international design competition: Future House 2018 – Modular House. The competition is designed to challenge and seek the creation of a modular house with ideas and concepts in architectural design, as well as landscape design and site planning. The aim of this competition is to promote our ideas for space utilization, as well as focusing on awakening the perception of the building process, while simultaneously raising awareness of the sustainability.
This year’s competition focuses on modular house, an extraordinary architectural style with sectional prefabricated components. A typical modular house consists of multiple sections called modules, meanwhile “modular” is a method of construction differing from other methods of building. Those sections are made off-site (eg. in a factory), and then delivered and assembled onsite. This process can cut up to half the time required for a traditional build, but with a comparable lifespan to other buildings. With less time spent onsite, this means less damage to the environment. Entrants are challenged to conceive a new and original concept for modular house, however not strictly limited to the style of ‘pre-fabricated structure’. A degree of flexibility and alternative choices are allowed, from ‘private home’ to ‘social house’, from ‘mixed-use apartments’ to ‘student residences’, provided it is backed up with adequate justification. The main philosophy of your submitted work is defined as “modular technology”.
We also encourage the creation of new living style which is not only limited for houses, but also can be like pavilions, structures, or landscape. Whoever you are students or professional architects, or experienced designers, working individually or in teams, we warmly welcome you to take participate in this competition. Winning participants will receive cash prize with certificate. The total prizes are $1,000, including $500 for the first place winner. Winning projects will be posted on the official website as a competition portfolio with exhibition launched.
