First Place: A Forest for Rest by Jorge Cobo (Spain)
The design looks at integrating the built and the unbuilt, with “adaptation” being a core principle of the living space. The “A Forest for Rest” house exemplifies ‘Living small yet living it all’ phrase; it embodies the characteristics of sustainability and resourceful living. The house also incorporates renewable energies to sustain itself, thus making it a responsible element of our environment.
Second Place: Ecottage by Dylan Morel and Dorian Bernard (France)
The Ecottage is designed to be environmentally responsible; it aims to be a solution to fight the adverse effects of climate change through its adaptive spatial design. This house is made of prefabricated mass, adapting to every individual habitat needs. Created with an intent to preserve natural resources, the Ecottage has the potential to be completely energy independent, a vital characteristic necessary to sustain life in the coming years.
Third Place: Off the Walls by Tak Ying Chan (United States)
The “Off the Walls” tiny house is designed with the concept of sheltering homeless people in the Bushwick neighbourhood of New York during today’s difficult pandemic situation. Its design celebrates the vibrant street art culture of the neighbourhood, making it an indelible part of its dynamic surroundings and communities. Made of recycled elements, the house envisions sustainability and adaptability as means to invigorate the neighbourhood and its communities.
