Housing+ San Francisco 2050 Announces Its Design Competition Awardees

The American Institute of Architects, San Francisco is pleased to announce the awardees of the AIASF Housing+ San Francisco 2050 Design Competition, which the chapter initiated to address San Francisco’s housing crisis. Congratulations!

AIASF’s Housing Knowledge Community invited architects to rethink the San Francisco home after recent California legislation was proposed that would effectively eliminate single-family exclusive zoning; additionally, San Francisco approved the 2022 San Francisco Housing Element requiring 82,000 new housing units by 2031. The competition, which opened up for submissions in March 2023, invited competitors to imagine multiple dwellings on mid-block parcels and corner lots in San Francisco’s Sunset District. Jurors were asked to evaluate entries based on dwelling quality, constructability, the potential to foster community, as well as aesthetic and environmental benefits.
