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.
The RE-Stock London Housing competition is open until 12 May, 2020, with winners of the US $6,000 prize to be announced on 14 July, 2020.
