Worldly Architecture Competitions
The Cubierta Verde by Andres Cardoso & Mariana Zuniga

{SummaryTitle}

A yearly competition at the Universidad de la República (Republic University) in Uruguay led to this winning design by Andrés Cardoso and Mariana Zúñiga. The Cubierta Verde home has an open floorplan and plenty of green space in the center. Instead of a central patio of concrete, the area is grassy and welcoming.

Each year at the university, the sale of the home built by the winning students helps pay for all the architectural students to travel around the world for their studies. The Cubierta Verde is just the latest financier of the students. Pretty smart idea.
