The winners of the Portland Courtyard housing competition have been posted. From the press release:
Participants were invited to submit innovative designs demonstrating how higher-density courtyard housing can serve as an attractive option for families with children, while also contributing to environmental sustainability, providing an affordable housing option, and responding to neighborhood context. The competition is part of city efforts to foster design excellence and the creation of new family-friendly housing in Portland's neighborhoods. During the announcement event, the winning designs will be on display and competition jurors will be on hand to comment on the competition and their choices. Following this event, the public will be invited to choose their favorite designs as part of "People's Choice" balloting to take place later in November and in December.
