The $100,000 Sustainable Home Design Competition
Competition Objective: In 2016, the City of Phoenix Mayor and Council adopted ambitious 2050 Sustainability Goals, its roadmap to becoming a carbon-neutral, zero-waste city. As a step towards achieving these goals, the City of Phoenix wishes to encourage the construction of ultra-low energy use homes. However, in order to create the designs needed in the marketplace, the City of Phoenix, in Partnership with the AIA is launching the Sustainable Home Design Competition with a $100,000 prize to be awarded to the winning design of a beautiful “near net-zero energy” single family home that has the best potential for wide-spread adoption in the region (climate zone 2). The intent is that sufficient public interest will be generated throughout the competition that demand for the winning design will result in the construction of at least ten homes immediately following the conclusion of the competition.
