Competition :: ACSA 2013-2014 Steel Design Student Competition



The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) is pleased to announce the fourteenth annual steel design student competition for the 2013-2014 academic year. Administered by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) and sponsored by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), the program is intended to challenge students, working individually or in teams, to explore a variety of design issues related to the use of steel in design and construction. Steel must be used as the primary structural material and contain at least one space that requires long-span steel structure, with special emphasis placed on innovation in steel design.

THE OPPORTUNITIES
The 2013-2014 Steel Design Student Competition will offer architecture students the opportunity to compete in two separate categories. A total of $14,000 will be distributed in cash prizes.

- Category I BORDER-CROSSING STATION: challenges architecture students to design a border-crossing station sited on a boundary between two countries. Steel offers great benefits in this endeavor, as it allows for longer spans and more creativity.

- Category II OPEN: offers architecture students the opportunity to select a site and building program using steel as the primary material. This competition category permits the greatest amount of flexibility for any building type.

Students may not enter both categories of the competition.
