BCN-NYC Affordable Housing Challenge is an international competition with the aim to find innovative technologies and tools to shorten project timelines, reduce costs, and promote a cleaner and more sustainable industry. The two cities wish to further the use of new technologies, to cut housing construction times and costs, and to promote a cleaner and more sustainable industry.

The deadline for proposals is January, with finalists selected in March. The winner will be revealed in May. The winning project will get 20 000 dollars to present its proposal in relevant places in both cities. Further implementation will be explored through a partnership with an affordable housing developer, if appropriate.
