Sustainable design housing competition, South Africa

The FCCN has been pleased to support the first City Centre Sustainable Design Housing Competition (CCSDHC), a joint initiative of CIB Working Commissions in Architectural Design and Management (W096), Smart and Sustainable Built Environments (W116), and Construction in Developing Countries (W107) as part of CIB’s 70th anniversary.

Open to teams of third year architecture students from 10 South African universities, the aim is to generate imaginative and exciting ideas about how to convert a underused space in downtown Tshwane/Pretoria into a sustainable, liveable community.

As well as prizes for the overall best designed assessed by the CIB judges, there are prizes for different strands of sustainability - economic, social and environmental - and a special sponsors prize for innovative building technologies.
