Architecture Competition: Build-Up – A better future for the poor via incremental housing

Brief: The challenge is to design an incremental house model that can be replicated in large numbers and grouped to create a low-income housing colony.

The incremental housing unit designed must be modular with comfortable physical spaces. Possible negative implications of self-construction on the inhabitant’s standard of living and the environment must be anticipated.

Privacy and interaction must be guided in the layout as per the nature of the activity. The balance between aesthetics and functionality must be achieved. The design must establish some harmony or connection with the surrounding environment.

We call for housing solutions that not only resolve today’s concerns and necessities, but they allow for extension, in the event of economic progress or improvement in the state, over time. The participants must make sure that the housing is adaptable to the climatic, economic, and social conditions of the area.
