In the aftermath of conflict, countless citizens have found themselves displaced and in need of immediate, flexible, and sustainable housing solutions. The "Reconstruction of Ukraine: Modular Housing Hackathon" aims to address this pressing issue by bringing together a diverse group of thinkers. Join us in this crucial rebuild of lives and communities through the power of innovative modular housing solutions. Together, we can make a lasting impact on the reconstruction of Ukraine.

Why should I join and contribute 🤔?

Traditionally, emergency shelters have been temporary structures, often made of basic materials like tents and tarpaulins. Factors like extreme weather conditions, pest infestations, and overall wear and tear pose significant challenges. We can do better together!

  • The prize pool for the hackathon is 5000 euros, which will be shared between the winning teams.
  • The best concepts will receive additional support for further development, with an opportunity to present results to a global audience.
  • Build and strengthen partnerships with local businesses to supply materials and labour, promoting economic development and sustainability.
  • Encourage the development of micro-enterprises within displaced communities that can contribute to the construction and maintenance of modular housing units.
  • Collaborate with humanitarian organisations / NGOs to integrate modular housing solutions into broader relief efforts, ensuring a coordinated and effective response.

Make a lasting impact and register to join here by March 29th!


Do you have the answer? Check out the challenges and formulate your solutions.
We are inviting all critical thinkers who want to aid and make a lasting impact for individuals in need; including designers, architects, engineers, citizens, business developers, urban planners, and policymakers. Participants should develop real concepts and solutions during the hackathon, focussing on on-the-ground decision-making for flexible housing solutions. Solution examples: 1. Develop modular housing units that are easily assembled, disassembled, and transported to accommodate different site conditions and community needs. 1. Explore modular designs that can be adapted for various family sizes and demographics; 2. Utilise sustainable and durable materials to ensure longevity and resist harsh environmental conditions; 3. Explore the integration of emerging technologies such as 3D printing, robotics, and automation in the construction process to enhance efficiency and reduce costs; 4. Incorporate renewable energy sources (solar panels, wind turbines), sanitation and water purification and energy-efficient technologies to create resilient housing solutions.
