The Mixing Middle Competition

Welcome to The Mixing Middle.

Existing monocultural single-family neighbourhoods need to densify with Missing Middle housing.  But that on its own isn’t enough. Those neighbourhoods also need a variety of activities to thrive. This competition asks entrants to add new mixed-use functionality to skillfully enhance densifying areas.

URBANARIUM HAS A CALL OUT FOR CREATIVE DESIGN ENTRIES TO CHANGE SINGLE-FAMILY ZONING

  • $35,000 in cash prizes

 

Participants will explore lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic, when many people found themselves working from home while caring for the young and the old.

Also:

  • Integrating commercial, recreational and social enterprises that are compatible with housing
  • co-housing
  • intergenerational living
  • hospitable “arrival cities”
  • sustainability
  • active transportation
  • and the sharing economy

 

Registration deadline is October 8th, 2021
