Architecture Competition: Living Village Design Competition
The Living Village Design Competition is a collaboration with the SA Housing Authority, Citylab, and the Australian Institute of Architects.
Open to Institute members, this is an exciting opportunity for emerging architects to showcase innovative ideas in the affordable housing space.
A site in Unley, South Australia is being used as an example location to create innovative ideas for mixed-use housing developments that foster the creation of a living village grounded in affordable housing but deeply connected to innovation, environmental sustainability, and the local community they are located in.
