New York City is seeking innovative ideas for providing Provisional Housing for residents who may lose their homes as the result of a catastrophic coastal storm.

The temporary housing that is the focal point of this Competition is called provisional in the sense that it is intended only as an interim step until a permanent solution is achieved. When residents return to live in Provisional Housing in their previous surroundings, they can be active participants in the City’s long-established planning process that will determine the permanent reconstruction of their communities. 

The "What If New York City..." Design Competition for Post-Disaster Provisional Housing is a two-part process consisting of an Open Competition followed by a Project Development Period. The Competition is intended to generate innovative solutions for post-disaster Provisional Housing.

During the Open Competition, Competitors will register, read the Competition Materials, and submit the required Submissions. The Competition Jury will review all Submissions meeting the requirements and select ten (10) Winning Submissions that best meet the Judging Criteria.

The Winners of the Open Competition will be awarded $10,000 to further develop their Submissions in the Project Development Period. The Competition Jury will also award ten (10) Honorable Mentions of $500.
