Edmonton Has Its First Competition For Infill Design
Infill development is one of the most talked about developmental concerns in Edmonton. It has received mixed reviews throughout the city and so much criticism has been focused on the way the houses do not fit in with their surroundings.
However, the city is giving Edmontonians a chance to cast their vote on how the city can influence residents to stay in the city after launching the first ever infill design competition.
The Edmonton infill design competition is a great opportunity to encourage productive conversations among Edmontonians about infill. It will help the public as well as the real estate community to review some of the best possible choices. This competition also demonstrates that infill will fit in instead of detract from the character of the already established neighborhoods.
The city has received over eighty submissions from people all over the continent, and there is now a shorter list compiled of eighteen that will go up for the vote. Some of the selected designs include super modern skinny houses as well as small homes with solar panels decorating the living room walls.
Registration and online voting is open. Both students and professionals can vote for their preferred designs. The final votes should be submitted on or before Oct 3, 2016, and the selected designs that win will be announced on Oct 20 at the competition gala.
Edmonton’s infill design competition was greatly inspired by a plan for the city to increase the urban density, and this vote will show Edmontonians the wide range of infill designs. Edmonton is excited to celebrate innovation as well as advancement in the designing possibilities for infill development in the city.
