ICON Continues its Support for Affordable Housing Development Competition
ICON Architecture is a proud sponsor of the 18th Annual Affordable Housing Development Competition, which is hosted by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston (FHLBB).
ICON has sponsored the competition for more than a decade, and has mentored student teams through this intense six week competition to success each year. The competition pairs teams of graduate students from local colleges and universities together with a focus in architecture, planning, finance and policy with local affordable housing organizations and their specific project site and program. Students walk away with an increased appreciation for the value of cross-disciplinary teamwork, new friendships forged, and an awareness of strategies and challenges in designing and financing affordable housing in the Commonwealth.
The awards and reception ceremony will take place tomorrow evening at the Boston Society of Architects, which includes student presentations of their proposals. If you would like to learn more about the Affordable Housing Development Competition, and to see past winners, check out FHLBBoston.
