An international architectural competition organizer AC-CA has started a new competition. The aim of the competition is to design a Container Vacation House overlooking the Bondi Beach waterfront in Sydney using a used freight container. The organizer hopes to achieve the following:
- Encourage and reward design excellence at a small scale which integrates function, structure, details and the spirit of waterfront home;
- Research and investigate the various combination possibilities for freight container units to meet the specified program;
- Generate the discussion and ideas about the reuse of freight container modules and encourage the employment of sustainable design in all aspects of the proposal.
