Jury Awards University of Oregon Architectural Student with First Place

Today we’re excited to unveil, in honor of Earth Day, the winners of our perFORM 2014 design competition!  perFORM challenged emerging architecture professionals to fuse high design with high performance building in the design of a single-family house in Seattle that achieves Passive House-like levels of energy performance while being resourceful, replicable, and beautiful.

First Place Winner
Cameron Huber, architectural student at the University of Oregon, won the $2000 first place award for his entry, entitled “HO[MIN]ID.”  Cameron’s design impressed the jury with its restraint, purity of form, friendliness to neighborhood context, and understanding of energy performance within a holistic approach to sustainability.
