The challenge for this year’s Mud House Design competition in Ghana was to design a single-family unit on a plot no larger than 60 x 60 feet at a cost of no more than $6,000 (excluding land cost). The idea was designed to generate contemporary mud house designs o be available for free for everyone to use, and to hold building workshops to construct the best design entries. These would serve as examples to the local people that mud architecture can be both durable and beautiful. After receiving numerous submissions, the Nka Foundation has announced the winners: The 1st prize winning design is Sankofa House by M.A.M.O.T.H from France; the 2nd prize winner is Eban Aya by Atelier Koe in Senegal; and the 3rd prize is awarded to Ejisu Earth House by Jason Orbe-Smith from the USA. More information can be found at the Nka Foundation website.
