Who doesn’t love a suburban home? Suburbia, that early 20th century typology, still holds a fascination for the architect, despite the rise of the larger metropolis and megalopolis. Even in our modern world, the aspirational middle-class values it embodies retain their draw.
History has charted suburbia as a battleground for artistic movements –from Mod to punk and now bedroom-generated electronic music; and that’s tracked by competing architectural styles: arts and crafts, neo-vernacular, modernism... even post-modernism.
Inspired by this, our competition #SpanningSuburbia, in partnership with the UK’s largest steel lintel manufacturer, @IGLintels invites architects to offer us their own vision with a design for a 21st century suburban family villa.
There will be a cash prize of £2,000 for the winner and £500 for each of the three commended entries! Entry deadline: 11:59 pm, 14 May 2019. All details and entry form here: http://ow.ly/xMmS50q0iYD
