Many firms have been tackling the housing crisis, such as Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners who have rolled out a series of volumetric pods, the Y-Cube

New London Architecture (NLA), in partnership with the Mayor of London, have launched a world-wide competition to try and tackle the housing shortage that has long plagued England’s capital

The hope is that this international opportunity will garner entries from both across the globe and locally to find a range of solutions for the housing crisis that has lasted for 20 years. Rather than coming up with purely theoretical concepts, the organisers believe that by running this contest they will find real, deliverable solutions.

The Y-Cube by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners can be delivered on the back of a truck to temporary sites, providing accommodation while land awaits development

Submissions are open to both organisations and the public, and the competition is not solely based on design. A wide range of sectors can be addressed by entrants, such as planning, funding, construction, design or even products. The shortlisted entries will form the basis of an events programme and exhibition hosted by NLA between October and December.

If you have an idea, design or strategy that you would like to submit for the New Ideas for Housing London competition you can find more details here.

Deadline for submissions is 5pm August 7
