The latest studies have revealed: Particularly in urban areas, there will be considerably less privately used living space in future. Many of the things that you still have in your own four walls are being relocated into shared areas. This development is subsumed under the term “Microliving”.
The “Hawa Student Award 2020” takes up the topic with a fictitious project on the plot of the bus station in Zurich. The goal is for the students to design a building with 250 to 300 small apartments and shared rooms directly above the site. Intelligent solutions are wanted for flexible use of the residential units, which will have a maximum area of 35 square meters.
A distinguished jury will assess the applications and present the awards. Hawa Sliding Solutions is providing a total prize fund of 12,000 Swiss Francs.
