ICA&CA Texas Chapter and Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity Dream Dallas Home Design Competition

The Texas Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Classical America is teaming with Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity to sponsor a vernacular housing design competition. This collaboration was forged to engage professionals and students in the fields of architecture and interior design to enrich transitioning neighborhoods by inspiring attractive housing designs that can be readily built by Habitat for Humanity volunteers.

The competition will be launched at a kickoff event on April 22, 2010. Designs will be accepted throughout the summer and the winners will be announced at an awards event in September 2010. Their ultimate goal is to raise the funds to enable Habitat for Humanity to build a house in west Dallas based on the winning entry.

Note that although the entry fee is $250, students may submit an email requesting a grant of $200 to help defray their cost. Emails outlining the request may be sent to ica@lebarchitects.com

They encourage registered entrants to attend the question and answer session held on April 22, 6:30pm at the Gilliland Residence in Dallas. Entry registration due is April 30, 2010. Submissions due by July 30, 2010.

There will be cash prizes for the design competition:
  • First prize – $3,000
  • Second prize – $1,000
  • Honorable mention – Five prizes of $250 each
