New year , new competition. It seems a bit late for such saying, but I was working on this entry in December/January and waited only for the results to be published before posting anything. It was a great experience and I can honestly say I was quite happy with the quality of our submission.
Here something about the project. It was a public competition based in Chicago, USA organised by the American Institute of Architects. According to the 2015 Chicago Homeless Count and Survey conducted by the City of Chicago, 31% of the unsheltered homeless population and 19% of those that are sheltered are between the ages of 18 and 24 years old. AIA Chicago called for ideas for the emerging typology for urban housing called Tiny Homes. Tiny Homes can provide a lower-cost solution to the need for affordable and subsidized housing in Chicago; particularly for those young adults living without stable housing.
