Living Steel announces winners of sustainable housing competition

Living Steel announced the winners of its International Competition for Sustainable Housing at the UN-Habitat World Urban Forum III in Vancouver.

The competition called for designs that could be built in two locations: Warsaw in Poland and Kolkata in India. Architectenbureau cepezed from the Netherlands has won the competition for a design to be built in Poland. The competition for India has been won by UK architects Piercy Conner Architects. Each firm will be awarded a prize of €50,000 (approximately $65,000 US) and a contract to develop their designs for construction.

The winners were selected by an jury chaired by internationally-renowned architect Glenn Murcutt and approved by the International Union of Architects (UIA).

The Jury selected winners from a short-list of 10 architecture firms for the Polish competition and 8 for India. Each company making it on to the short-list received an honorarium of €10,000.

They were asked to design buildings that advanced the concept of sustainable housing in each location, demonstrating the value and performance of steel in improving economic, environmental and social performance.
