Living Steel is once again asking architects to take up the challenge to develop sustainable housing for the world’s burgeoning housing shortage.

The 3rd International Architecture Competition presents architects with the task of creating energy efficient, single-family, detached housing that minimises climate change emissions and can withstand temperature extremes, yet is affordable to build and to buy.

The competition’s Call for Expressions of Interest is launched today, and the world’s architects can enter until 28 April 2008.

Architects entering an Expression of Interest must do so as a team of two architects to be eligible for short-list consideration.

Judged by some of the leading architects around the world, total prizes and honoraria are €100,000, with the winning design awarded €50,000.

The winning architects will use the exceptional qualities of steel to construct their design in Cherepovets, Russian Federation, where temperatures can range from -49 C to +34 C.

The homes constructed from the winning designs will be part of a community for use by employees of Russian steel maker, SeverStal JSC, headquartered in Cherepovets.
