RIBA launches flexible housing competition

Lake District

Designers challenged to come up with housing aimed at young people in the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales

The RIBA has launched a competition to find flexible housing designs for two sites within the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.

With prizes worth £4,000 going to shortlisted designers, the competition is aimed at global architects who can design flexible housing focused specifically at young people and to attract them to the areas, which have 44% fewer people aged 16-34 than the national average.

The judging panel includes Sasha Bhavan of Knox Bhavan as RIBA advisor and Nathan Cornish of Urban Splash.
