PHIUS awarded the finalists of the 2020 Passive Projects Design Competition during the annual Design Awards ceremony on Friday, October 30, 2020, capping a week of the PHIUS 2020 Passive House Hootenannies. Now in its sixth year, this juried competition recognizes exemplary passive building projects of all types and climate zones.
