School of Architecture + Planning shares top honors in housing competition

Winning teams include students in planning, architecture and real estate

Thirteen School of Architecure + Planning (SA+P) students from programs in architecture, urban planning and real estate development were members of winning teams that captured top honors in the 2011 Affordable Housing Development Competition.

Since the contest's establishment 11 years ago, SA+P has consistently been represented among the top winners, including representation on every first-place team.

Sponsored by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston — in conjunction with the Boston Society of Architects/AIA, Kevin P. Martin & Associates, Citizens' Housing and Planning Association, ICON Architecture and Shepley Bulfinch — the annual competition pairs teams of talented graduate students with affordable housing organizations to develop proposals for housing in which at least 40 percent of the units could be sold or rented to low-income households. This year was an especially tough competition with eight teams participating from four different schools, an all-time record.
