The Innovation in Affordable Housing Student Design and Planning Competition (IAH) is a HUD initiative to encourage research and innovation in affordable housing, to raise practitioner and future practitioner capacity, and to foster cross-cutting team-work within the design and community development process. The IAH competition has been designed to replicate a real-life approach. Multi-disciplinary teams comprised of graduate students in architecture, planning and policy, finance and other areas have been asked to address social, economic, and environmental issues in planning a new construction or gut rehab of a senior housing development managed by the Houma-Terrebonne Housing Authority.
On April 21, four student finalist teams, representing the University of Minnesota, New York University, University of California Los Angeles, and the University of Kansas will present their final projects in front of a jury of practitioners and live audience at HUD headquarters in Washington, DC. The jury will deliberate before the winner and runner up are announced at the conclusion of the event.
