…The 2013 Carbon Challenges kick off.

In partnership with the City of Baltimore and Habitat for Humanity of Rhode Island, the APA is kicking off two 2013 Carbon Challenge Design Competitions this week. In Baltimore designers are asked to create a new urban row house design while considering the impact that building materials have on the environment. In Providence the challenge will be to create a new Habitat house using similar perimeters. 

There is $10,000 in prize money to be shared among the top three finalists plus the winners of three design categories: Best Use of Wood Products, Best Curb Appeal and Most Cost-Effective Design.
