CTA Summer Student Gets Honourable Mention

November 3, 2014

CTA Summer Student James Bligh entered WORKshop’s House 2020 competition and has received an Honourable Mention for his submission, Infill House.

Infill House was designed to fit with rising economic, energy, population, and pollution trends and utilizes innovative technologies such as “NASA-inspired water purification and recovery, natural air cleansing, and clever use of renewable energy.”

WORKshop Inc. is a Toronto-based incubator “for the development of ideas and the generation of prototypes intended for production and commercial distribution in local and international markets.” The House 2020 competition asked university students to conceptualize what a house of the future would look like. At the same time, this house of the future would need to be “realizable, pragmatic, and cost-effective,” and buildable in the year 2020.
