For the Home for the Blind competition, participants are asked to submit designs for a semi-detached house for a single blind occupant. The property would need to include all the basic amenities of a typical home, such as a kitchen, bedroom, living room, and bathroom, as well as a small courtyard. Designers are asked to create projects that enhance the lives and living experiences of the inhabitants. Materiality, circulation, and zoning are just a few of the things that participants should focus on in their project submissions.

There is no specified site for this competition, so participants are asked to select a theoretical site from their own home country.


Architecture and design are primarily thought of as visual mediums, with visual aesthetics at the heart of many aspects of modern architectural home and workplace design. But more than being appealing to the eye, great architecture needs to be functional. No one knows this better than those with functional variations that mean they have limited senses and rely on good architecture and great design on a daily basis.

The Home for the Blind competition is the first in the Bee Breeders accessible architecture series which focuses on exploring the relationship between architecture and accessibility. Architects and designers have a unique opportunity to reinvent accessible architecture by putting accessibility at the forefront of design, rather than leaving it as an afterthought. How can architecture influence how a person moves through a home? How can it help people to feel safe, comfortable, and independent?
