ACTIVATE NC invites you to share your ideas on contemporary housing in the inner city. The competition encourages a housing type that blends different income levels and demographics and helps knit together the fabric of the city. A building boom of multifamily housing is underway in many of our growing cities , but very little of it is designed for its place or program. From Charlotte to Seattle, multifamily housing tends to look the same. This competition asks entrants to create a design that embraces diversity, that is designed specifcally for a site in Charlotte, and that is a good neighbor to small scale houses, streets, and light commercial and industrial buildings that comprise the neighborhood.
