The decision to honour her became the central theme of the design competition.

International
Registration: April 19th 2019 Submission Deadline: June 6th 2019
For the Rome Collective Living Challenge, participants are tasked with designing a concept for affordable housing in Rome that fits the ideals of a co-living lifestyle. This competition is a chance for architecture enthusiasts to conceive an entirely new way of living, one that experiments with the concept of low-income housing as a collective.
