Congratulations to Anthony Ip for his winning entry “Carton Kit House”
Launched in partnership with the 2011 Australian and New Zealand Student Congress: FLUX, the competition brief was to design a two bedroom, light weight, quick to construct and deconstruct temporary ‘home’ that could be replicated, and which has minimal environmental impact over the building’s life-cycle -an Emergency Kit home
It was Anthony’s innovative use of shipping containers and skillful application of Autodesk Architecture, Analysis and Rending software that impressed the judges.
My solution to the ‘Emergency Kit’ house is to make use of used shipping containers and create a “template” room, which is pre-fabricated and can be used over and over again as a sustainable temporary house for people in need. This “template” room can also be combined to create larger houses and even different typologies of housing including common rooms, temporary medical centre, indoor playground etc.”

Anthony will now travel to Autodesk University in Las Vegas, along with Brenton Wyett from Autodesk Australia. Autodesk University is where designers, engineers, and architects come together with industry and technology leaders to better understand new technologies, exchange best practices, and form new business strategies.
Autodesk University is the largest gathering of software users, with attendees coming from all over the world to experience this larger than life event- there are over 700 classes and up to 10 things happening at any one time! During three intensive days Anthony will develop his skills, discover the latest ideas, be inspired, make professional connections and most importantly change the way he thinks. There will of course be time to work in some socializing as well!
From presentations on BIM, Designing a Better World and the Promise of the Cloud, Anthony will learn from experts and industry leaders such as Mark Foster Gage, principal and architect, Gage/Clemencea; Randi Zuckerberg, former Facebook founder and director of marketing and Ed Mazria, Founder and CEO of Architecture 2030.
