Future housing solutions could be in Western Australian students’ hands

By Kevin Kelly

A new competition launched by the Western Australian government aims to discover the future of architecture, with tertiary students going head-to-head to submit new design ideas to for their chance to create innovative, sustainable housing models.

Housing minister Colin Holt said the competition would give the students a great chance to get some real world experience, while also testing their architecture and design skills.

"Students are the future professionals who will deliver affordable housing and they can offer a unique perspective on design – not limited by existing industry norms and conventions," said Mr Holt in a 16 April statement.

There will be teams of four or six competingfor their share of $17,500 worth of prize money, with $10,000 being reserved for the team that comes in first place. The winners will be announced in October at the National Housing Conference 2015 in Perth, where their ideas and designs will be celebrated.

This could be great news for the future growth of property across Western Australia, especially if the winning designs are able to help cut costs and increase housing affordability in new, innovative ways.
