Freegreen.com is challenging you to develop affordable green home designs that fit contemporary lifestyles. There are a lot of people who want a new home but don't want a generic suburban McMansion. The American dream is not one size fits all. Our dreams are changing, and FreeGreen is challenging, you, the residential design community, to develop new ideas for people who don't dream of the generic.

The single family home is the most commonly built building in America, but less than 5 percent of the homes built in America have direct involvement with an Architect. The challenge of the Who's Next competition is to re-envision the typical suburban home in an ecologically conscious manner that also reflects today's modern lifestyle.

Competitors will select one of two user profiles [Profile 1: The Starter House | Profile 2: The Not So Empty Nest] and design a single family home that fits their chosen profile. All homes designed in this contest must be 1800 Sq. Ft. or less.
