AIA Austin and Community First! announced the winners of the Tiny Victories design competition today. The contest sought innovative solutions for affordable, efficient housing and challenged architects to design safe, sustainable, quality microhouses for the homeless. The winning projects will be built at Community First! Village, a 27-acre master-planned community that will provide housing and a wide range of community resources for the disabled and chronically homeless in Central Texas. The initiative is a program of Mobile Loaves & Fishes of Austin. Construction of the homes is expected to begin in March of 2015.
