An opportunity to go beyond the status quo is defined.
Every year, about 2 million shipping containers are no longer used. What if these could be upcycled into sustainable architecture to reduce the total carbon footprint of global development?
A challenge is then offered to the world. Architects, designers, engineers, inventors and innovators will form teams and submit their proposals.
GO BEYOND: shipping containers by upcycling them into modular habitats.
One winning team will progress to the next stage where a full scale, working prototype will be constructed.
Prizes for this year's challenge:
USD 5,000 Prize Money
Stage 2 :
Up to USD 15,000 for Prototyping
USD 10,000 upon completion of working Prototype
Design the interior and exterior of 2 different Habitat Units using 2 Containers. Every unit should cater for 2 occupants with an attached bathroom.
Combine 2 Containers in 3 combinations to create 3 more Habitat Units with double volume spaces. Design the interior, exterior and connection. Every unit should cater for 4 occupants with 1 attached bathroom.
