InstantHouse Temporary Housing launches the 4th edition of an ideas competition created by FederLegno Arredo, the Politecnico di Milano and MADEexpo.
Designers are invited to envision environmental, social and economic opportunities in temporary housing, which specifically address the scientific community within Politecnico di Milano’s Sustainable Campus project. The competition explores potential innovative solutions derived from using new technologies in sustainable design, and which respond to the evolving typologies of city users and inhabitants.
InstantHouse aims to combine temporality and mobility with both social interaction and ecological values, resulting in powerful new possibilities for temporary housing. The competition welcomes applications from all students and young professionals in the field of architecture, engineering, industrial design, and urban planning worldwide.
InstantHouse winning projects will be featured as part of an exhibition hosted by the MADEexpo Milan fair 2012, an event which attracts over 250,000 visitors.
