Two major events in the 21st century have significantly impacted the manner in which buildings are designed and constructed—9-11 and Hurricane Katrina. Architecture is responding to this reality with buildings that are better able to resist the impact of severe forces which can be imposed upon them in a major storm or attack. Professionals and students need to be aware of the options available to deal with this new reality – Tilt-Up concrete provides one such option.

Students are invited to present conceptual designs for a storm-resistant housing complex located along the Gulf Coast using site cast concrete panels known as Tilt-Up for their shell components.

This competition seeks to challenge entrants in creatively solving the problem of replacing large volumes of single-family housing for lower income levels in regions hardest hit by recent hurricanes along the Gulf Coast. Wind and water forces on existing Gulf Coast regions have resulted in devastating losses while rebuilding efforts to date offer only short-term solutions subject to repeating scenarios. Entrants are encouraged to present prominent, architecturally significant design solutions for housing units that can be placed in new rebuild communities that provide measurable improvements to long-term durability.
