The Innovation in Affordable Housing Student Design and Planning Competition (IAH), currently in its sixth year, is a HUD initiative to encourage research and innovation in affordable housing, to raise practitioner and future practitioner capacity, and to foster cross-cutting team-work within the design and community development process. The IAH competition has been designed to replicate a real-life approach. Multidisciplinary teams comprised of graduate students in architecture, planning and policy, finance, and other areas have been asked to address social, economic, environmental, design, and construction issues while designing a new mixed-use development for low- and moderate-income residents situated along the San Antonio Riverwalk on a site identified by the San Antonio Housing Authority.
On April 17, four student finalist teams, representing Virginia Tech, the University of Maryland, the University of California Berkeley, and Yale University will present their final projects in front of a jury of practitioners and live audience at HUD headquarters in Washington, DC. The jury will deliberate before the winner and runner up are announced at the conclusion of the event.
This is a unique opportunity to hear innovative student ideas in response to a real-world issue. We hope you can join us on April 17.
