This will be another big challenge for our participant who will have to come up with interesting design concept suitable for the lifestyle, environmental factor and general choice of 1Habitat1 style that characterises America and its inhabitants.

About American and its architecture

In America, you will find different types of style that reflect a rich and diverse history from four centuries of independence is diverse as its multicultural society. Pre-Columbian, Colonial, Romanesque, Post –War suburbs and Modern architecture. Some architects are quite conservative, but many have begun to embrace modern architecture and many cutting edge designs mostly of the high-rise building and modern commercial structures have flourished. You will also find very innovative and state of the art residential home that would be a challenge for any renowned architect to design and construct. Obviously, the 1Habitat1 Grand Prix will link the location where the Co-creation is being held and the type of design concept for our American-2017 competitors to meet the challenge and set the bar even higher.
