New Open Call Seeking Ambitious Solutions To Help Unlock Housing Issues In Wicklow

The Irish Architecture Foundation and The Housing Agency have announced details of a competition that is looking for innovative ideas to improve Ireland’s housing sector, including in Wicklow.

‘Housing Unlocked’, is calling for architects, together with people from a variety of disciplines and members of the public with a common interest in housing, to team up and submit ideas to solve housing issues in towns and villages in Wicklow.

Entries are now open, with practical ideas and creative thinking being sought in the areas of density, construction technologies, social inclusion, environmental and other issues.

A jury of high-profile judges will select around eight submissions which will each receive funding of €7,500 to develop their proposals into an exhibition piece.

The exhibition will open to the public in September this year.

All submissions must be made through an online form on the ‘Housing Unlocked’ website at HousingUnlocked.ie
