Online Student Competition

Updated: Apr 20, 2020

Over $500 in prizes available! (17 - 15 July 2020).

In association with Slavin Architects, the Western Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (WAAEH) are running an online student competition on Infill Housing.

The guiding principle of Housing First is that safe and secure housing should be quickly provided prior to, and not conditional upon, addressing other health and well-being issues. The success of this model, however, has been shown to be dependent on the availability of diverse affordable housing options. And this is where the discipline of architecture has the opportunity to contribute the most value.


The competition will be hosted virtually and takes place over a week following the release of a detailed brief.

BRIEF RELEASE: Friday 17 July 2020 at 3:00pm.

Submission: by 6:00pm Friday 24 July 2020 at 12:00pm.

Students must form teams of two. The proposed site will be an underutilised space in the West End of Fremantle - measured drawings and images are to be provided. Students are asked to be resourceful and creative to design a space to address our growing homelessness issue. Prescriptive brief and allocated site to be provided. Submissions to be made digitally via email.

The Jury

Dr Brad Pettitt, City of Fremantle.

Bill Coe, Director of Slavin Architects.

Dr. Lara Mackintosh, University of Notre Dame.

John Berger, Western Australian Alliance to End Homelessness.
