Open Source House
Our Design Competition starts on January 15th, 2010 and is open for team or individual participation. The challenge is to design a sustainable house in an expandable way. The modular construction should be suitable for local implementation and affordable for its future owners. The winner will have his/her design built in Ghana.
The deadline is May 17th, 2010. Before this date all designs must be submitted digitally. The Design Case, which will be published on the 17th of January, describes the format and drawings to deliver. Contestants are asked to deliver designs considering all house components -foundation, structure, floor, facade, roof- and its set of connections.http://www.os-house.org/english/os-house/Design+Competition
