How can light and shadows, both literal and figurative, shape and influence design? The Home of Shadows #2 competition is tasking architects and designers to explore how light and shadow can impact design choices.

The task for this competition is to design a home in which there is to be no artificial light. The home can be located on any site and take any form as long as it is fully functional without the need for artificial light.

The Home of Shadows competition is open to submissions until June 4, 2024, with winners of the 7,000 € prize to be announced on July 15, 2024. Visit for more details.
