A project by UT Arlington Professor Edward M. Baum, Prototype Social Housing for North Texas, has received a prestigious 2011 American Architecture Award.

The awards are given annually by the Chicago Athenaeum and the European Centre for Architecture Art and Design. The project offers home ownership to those of very modest means by providing dwellings at mortgage payments similar to current rental rates. In addition to low costs, the design emphasizes security, privacy, flexibility, energy efficiency, and residential character.

More information and images of the design can be accessed on the American Architecture Award's web link.
