27 Smith Street: The Home of Tomorrow

The red brick house is the truly iconic Australian home.

From the Hyde Park Barracks to the Californian bungalow of the 1920s and on to the landmark UTS Business School building, bricks are fundamental to how Sydney architecture has developed.

27 Smith Street is an average suburban block awaiting a home. This competition will call on architects to design the home of tomorrow. The challenge is to make the brick the new black.

Individuals or teams can enter in one of two categories: professional or student.

Prize pool of $10,000.

This competition closed on 26 February 2016.
