Room 318 Harvard Graduate School of Design
AHDC is open to graduate students interested in architecture, planning, finance, and policy. Student teams are paired with local developers to create an affordable housing proposal that covers issues of design, community engagement, sustainability, and finance. AHDC requires that at least two Boston-area schools be represented on each team, affording participants an opportunity to work with their peers from other universities.
In addition to their developer sponsor, teams are also paired with mentors who are professionals in the field to refine their designs and financing plans. Throughout the course of the competition, students also have access to experts in sustainable building technologies, housing law, and other related disciplines.
The competition is sponsored by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston, along with the Boston Society of Architects/AIA, Kevin P. Martin & Associates; ICON Architecture, Inc.; and Citizens' Housing and Planning Association.The top three proposals will split prizes of $10,000, $6,000 and $3,000, respectively, with their developers.
