THE COMPETITION:

Submissions are invited for an international open design competition for the design of an affordable 21st Century house. The competition seeks a housing design updating the original concept under-pinning Letchworth Garden City and the Garden City movement, incorporating new technologies and approaches to home and environment design to help meet the challenges of the 21st century, ensuring the homes will be environmentally, economically and socially sustainable. This competition does not seek to create a new garden city. It's targeted to generate specific housing solutions capable of implementation on selected sites throughout Letchworth Garden City. The potential for the competition is substantial, making it a significant, pioneer contributor to Letchworth's housing renaissance. The ambition is to deliver high-quality, low-cost, environmentally friendly, groundbreaking housing in Letchworth Garden City. You are invited to present housing proposals that don't exceed three stories albeit roof space can be used for living space, if required. Pitched roofs are preferred, although other roof types will be acceptable subject to design quality. We are looking for solutions that incorporate one or more of four housing formats (see website). It is hoped that from the entrants an entrants or a number of entrants can be appointed to take the design through to completion subject to successful funding and planning permission.
