The Buildner Accessible Architecture Essay Competition was run in tandem with The Home for the Blind competition, which sought designs for the home of a single blind occupant. For this essay competition, Buildner sought thoughts, insight, and research that best articulates a truly equitable understanding of inclusive accessible architecture.

Articulating the active role of architectural design in the disabling or enabling of its users is not an easy task, and winning entries that managed to do so were impressive. First prize was awarded to a student entry, Tiffany Agam, from the University of Miami in the United States.

Second prize went to Henry Tsang, licensed architect from Canada, while third prize was a group student entry from HafenCity Universität Hamburg in Germany from Aaron Wieland, Asad Tayyebi Fallah, Gabriela Lugones and Abhishek Sharma.
