3rd Advanced Architecture Contest

The 3rd Advanced Architecture Contest is organized around the theme of THE SELF-SUFFICIENT CITY: Envisioning the habitat of the future. The first contest focused on housing (here's my review of the subsequent book), with the following one devoted to the Self-Fab House.

From the IaaC website:
"The aim of the competition is to promote online discussion and research through which to generate insights and visions, ideas and proposals that help us envisage what the city and the habitat of the 21st century will be like.

The competition is open to architects, planners, designers and artists who want to contribute to progress in making the world more habitable by developing a proposal capable of responding to emerging challenges in areas such as ecology, information technology, socialization and globalization, with a view to enhancing the connected self-sufficiency of our cities.

Competition entries should be submitted via the Internet on Connected metropolises, Eco neighborhoods, Self-sufficient buildings, Intelligent homes or any other proposal for a short-, medium- or long-term project to create habitats that respond to the social, cultural, environmental and economic conditions that may obtain in the 21st century. The proposal should include whatever texts, drawings and other images may be needed to make it fully understandable."
