Just Big Enough- Green Housing for ALL architectural design competition

The Just Big Enough design competition will help us highlight how we can create very small very green housing that is affordable to people left out of the green housing market, and find a design solution to some surplus city-owned lots.

The competition is sponsored by the City of Northampton, co-sponsored by American Institute of Architects Western Massachusetts, and supported by the Boston Society of Architects Foundation and the Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity.
