Cameron Huber

UO architecture undergraduate Cameron Huber has won the $2,000 first-place award for his entry in the "perFORM 2014: A House Design Competition." The contest challenged emerging architects to fuse high design with high performance building in designing a single-family house “that achieves Passive House-like levels of energy performance while being resourceful, replicable, and beautiful.” Huber’s design, “HO[MIN]ID,” impressed the jury with its restraint, purity of form, friendliness to neighborhood context, and understanding of energy performance within a holistic approach to sustainability. Huber’s project was profiled in The Oregonian. All winning entries can be viewed online. The competition was sponsored by Hammer & Hand.
