Arch. Student Shortlisted in Modular Homes Design Competition

Architecture students Hiroki Mishima and Quentin Puiseux recently produced a project, “Ranger Cabins” that designed modular housing for park rangers in national parks around the world. Their project was shortlisted in the 2nd Annual International Architecture Competition for Modular Homes. The competition, hosted by Buildner Architecture Competitions, asked participants to submit innovative design proposals for a modular home that can be constructed in any form in any location.

For the competition, Buildner worked with an international jury of innovative architects and modular-design specialists that included: Bárbara Bardin, co-Founder of Madrid-based studio Canobardin; Pilar Cano-Lasso, leader of Madrid-based delavegacanolasso; Sarah Broadstock, architect at London-based Studio Bark; Mark Gabbertas of UK-based Gabbertas Studio; Inés Olavarrieta, architect and designer at Madrid-based selgascano.

Hiroki and Quentin’s design, which was shortlisted by the jury, provided modularity in the form of material laden pallets which could be inserted into parts of national parks that are normally difficult to access. The pair entered the competition as part of the Architectural Competitions winter intercession course taught by Architecture Professor Anthony Cricchio.
