The Underbridge Housing Challenge is Buildner’s attempts to address urban housing needs. In its 17th competition in the Affordable Housing Series, Buildner encourages one to venture into the overlooked and under-explored – diving deep into the spaces beneath bridges around the world. This competition beckons architects and visionaries globally to reimagine these spaces, to transform them into dynamic, thriving communities that resonate with the city’s heartbeat.
Participants have the liberty to pinpoint any underbridge site across the globe for their visionary designs. Essential considerations include the site’s accessibility, available amenities, and how the proposed solution harmonizes with the existing community. The designs should showcase adaptability, ensuring they cater to various needs while remaining both cost-effective and sustainable.
The Underbridge Housing Challenge is open to all. No professional qualification is required. Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum). Correspondence with organizers must be conducted in English; All information submitted by participants must be in English.
