Design Challenge:

This year’s theme calls for entries to take into consideration how end-users can continue to develop behaviours or actions that will keep the buildings and the community green in the tropical climate.

Entries should also focus on climatic adaptive building skins suitable for the locality identified, integrating landscape into the building design, incorporating passive and active design strategies, renewable energy (if any) and other ecological design features.

Entries can be of an entire building or a detailed study and it must include a degree of feasibility based on today’s available resources.
