The theme of the second £25,000 annual Davidson Prize is ‘Co–Living – A New Future?’. The brief asks whether co-living could offer a transformative key to the design of our homes – as well as our communities. The longlist was announced in March 2022, the three finalists will be announced in April and the overall winner announced in June.
