Buildner is excited to announce the launch of the Los Angeles Affordable Housing Challenge, the 16th edition in its series of global competitions aimed at addressing housing affordability crises. This competition invites architects, designers, and innovative thinkers from around the world to submit groundbreaking solutions that tackle the urgent need for affordable housing in Los Angeles, California. The city has been grappling with issues such as soaring rents, gentrification, and high costs of starter homes, which have left many lower-income households struggling to find suitable housing options.

The Los Angeles Affordable Housing Challenge seeks to inspire participants to create imaginative and pragmatic designs that cater to the diverse housing needs of the city's residents, while pushing the boundaries of conventional housing models. By focusing on flexibility, affordability, sustainability, and community integration, the competition aims to discover solutions that could reshape the future of housing in Los Angeles. Participants are encouraged to submit designs that challenge traditional ideas of housing and urban living, ultimately contributing to a more inclusive, sustainable, and vibrant city for all residents.

The Los Angeles Affordable Housing Challenge competition is open to submissions until November 1, 2023, with winners of the 7,000 € prize to be announced on February 14, 2024. Visit for more details.
