Center for Architecture Sarasota is pleased to announce the top 3 winning entries in the less is more – Tiny House Competition for both professional and student categories have been awarded. All winning entries will be displayed in the Center Gallery exhibition beginning April 29, 2021. Competition winners will also be featured in our partner publications. An exceptional jury with regional and international recognition in their respective disciplines of architecture, design and construction judged the entries and have served as an inspiration to the candidates for the competition.
The following information reflects the parameters of the competition. The competition has been designed to challenge and seek creativity with ideas and concepts for the Tiny House. The aim of the competition has been to promote small flexible, affordable and sustainable alternatives to traditional housing, while simultaneously raising awareness for non-traditional housing needs. For example, small movable structures can provide temporary housing for first responders and those displaced by disasters. They can house the homeless, and provide accessory dwellings to serve as on-property housing for aging relatives, students or returning children.
The competition was open to both Florida AIA professional and associate members and architecture students.
