2020 IAH Final Four Jury And Awards Presentation
The Innovation in Affordable Housing Student Design and Planning Competition (IAH), currently in its seventh year, is a HUD initiative to encourage research and innovation in affordable housing, to raise practitioner and future practitioner capacity, and to foster cross-cutting teamwork within design and community development processes. The IAH competition has been designed to replicate a real-life approach. Multidisciplinary teams composed of graduate students in architecture, planning and policy, finance, and other areas have been asked to address social, economic, environmental, design, financial, and construction issues while designing a new mixed-use development for mixed-income residents on a site in Santa Fe, New Mexico, identified by the Santa Fe County Housing Authority.
On April 16, four student finalist teams, representing the University of Maryland, College Park; the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; the University of California-Berkeley; and Yale University, will present their final projects as part of a live webcast. The jury will deliberate before the winner and runner-up are announced at the conclusion of the event.
This is a unique opportunity to hear innovative student ideas in response to a real-world issue. We hope you can join us via webcast on April 16.
