HUD Innovation in Affordable Housing Competition Finalists



This competition was designed 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.

Multidisciplinary teams were comprised of a minimum of three students and a maximum of five, plus one faculty advisor. Each team had members representing three different graduate level programs; one of which must be from an architectural or design-related program, and one of which must be from a non-architectural program.
