Brief: The challenge is to design an incremental house model that can be replicated in large numbers and grouped to create a low-income housing colony.

The incremental housing unit designed must be modular with comfortable physical spaces. Possible negative implications of self-construction on the inhabitant’s standard of living and the environment must be anticipated.

Privacy and interaction must be guided in the layout as per the nature of the activity. The balance between aesthetics and functionality must be achieved. The design must establish some harmony or connection with the surrounding environment.

We call for housing solutions that not only resolve today’s concerns and necessities, but they allow for extension, in the event of economic progress or improvement in the state, over time. The participants must make sure that the housing is adaptable to the climatic, economic, and social conditions of the area.

Arlisa Febriani, Indonesia
Winner of the Blue Bag Competition 2015 – Full Scholarship and living costs paid for at Lund University
Arlisa’s story is very unique and proof that given the right opportunity, the greatest ideas will succeed. By developing a revolutionary water cleansing system, she proved that anything is possible. This is great news for her, the people of Jakarta, and quite possibly the rest of the world who live in places with little or no access to clean water!
