Like so many major cities, London is constantly struggling to provide more affordable housing for its citizens. And since social housing was released for private sale, the supply of government-assisted council housing has dwindled to nearly nothing.
The RE-Stock London Housing architecture competition is the Bartlett School of Architecture initiative in partnership with Bee Breeders Architecture Competition Organisers and ARCHHIVE BOOKS where participants are asked to look at existing iconic council housing and RE-visit, RE-imagine, RE-invigorate and RE-think them.
This could involve adding to existing council housing schemes, or replicating what makes them so iconic in other locations across London.
RE-visit, RE-imagine, RE-invigorate and RE-think how housing can be the answer to some of society’s biggest problems: community cohesion, limited energy consumption, food production and reducing the carbon footprint, while at the same time remaining in keeping with the city’s situation and heritage.
Looking at different iconic housing schemes, participants are free to either extend these existing buildings and transform them, or by echoing their spirit with newly design buildings on a site of their choice within London.
This architecture competition requires participants to be bold and think outside the traditional box. How can housing be an answer to some of the questions we are facing today – community cohesion, limited energy consumption, reducing the carbon footprint, food production, construction methods and so on.
Winning participants will need to apply unique strategies as well as creative designs to tackle the housing crisis, while at the same time remaining in keeping with the city’s situation and heritage.
3 winning proposals, 2 and 6 honourable mentions will be selected. Bee Breeders will award a total of US $6,000 in prize money to competition winners as follows:
