HOUSE IN FOREST is pleased to announce its second annual international design competition: House In Forest 2018 – Timber House. This competition is designed to challenge and seek to explore the fantastic ides of architectural design, as well as landscape design and site planning. The aim of this competition is to promote our ideas of protecting the forest and its environment, as well as focusing on urban design problems, while simultaneously raising awareness of the sustainability.
This year’s competition focuses on timber houses, an extraordinary architectural style with traditional methods of building with heavy timbers, creating structures and joined timbers with other components. Entrants are challenged to conceive a new and original concept for a timber house, however not strictly limited to the style of ‘full-timbered structure’. A degree of flexibility and alternative choices are allowed, for example, ‘half-timbered’ or ‘partially wooden’, provided it is backed up with adequate justification. The project area is defined as a “forest area”.
Whoever you are, students or experienced designers, working individually or in teams, we warmly welcome you to take participate in this competition. Winning participants will receive a cash prize with a certificate. The total prizes are $1,000, including $500 for the first place winner.
