Call for Submission: Home for the Blind

The Home for the Blind competition is the first in the Bee Breeders accessible architecture series which focuses on exploring the relationship between architecture and accessibility. Architects and designers have a unique opportunity to reinvent accessible architecture by putting accessibility at the forefront of design, rather than leaving it as an afterthought. How can architecture influence how a person moves through a home? How can it help people to feel safe, comfortable, and independent?

Call for Submission: Home for the Blind

For the Home for the Blind competition, participants are asked to submit designs for a semi-detached house for a single blind occupant. The property would need to include all the basic amenities of a typical home, such as a kitchen, bedroom, living room, and bathroom, as well as a small courtyard.

Participants are asked to create designs that enhance the lives and living experiences of the inhabitants. Materiality, circulation, and zoning are just a few of the things that participants should focus on in their project submissions. 

This is an ideas competition, so participants are free to choose a location from their own home country and focus their efforts on innovative architectural concepts, rather than specific design details.
