IN_FILL DESIGN COMPETITION 2017

« All Events

A design competition to explore affordable, well-designed, and contextual contemporary single-family homes on infill lots across Indiana’s walkable core communities.

As Indiana focuses on developing a strong workforce, the accessibility of residential homeownership in proximity to work centers can still be a challenge. Simultaneously, the housing market across the country is showing a greater demand for walkability and connection in residential neighborhoods. Statewide, Indiana’s various communities have legacy neighborhoods located in close proximity to mixed-use and employment centers, however, there are also often vacant lots within these areas. The development of new, well-designed, owner-occupied housing on these lots is an economic opportunity this competition seeks to engage.

As a companion to the IN_fill Design Competition, AIA Indianapolis will be hosting a panel discussion on Thursday, 12 January 2017.  The panel will focus on affordable housing and the design challenges and opportunities faced by the profession when working on affordable projects in our region.  Guests will include spokespeople from funding sources, builders, and designers as we consider creating good design within finite resources. The event will take place at The Platform at City Market, downtown Indy’s shared public venue for people and organizations working to revitalize neighborhoods.
