You are the present and the future of architecture, challenge yourself, showcase your work, and show us what you are capable of.

How many people can be in a group to enter a competition?We recommend no more than three people per group as we have seen that this produces the best results. However, this is entirely up to you. We ask that each person creates an account on our website, individually, as we then have multiple points of contact, if needed. It also does not matter which member of your group submits your proposal as you will be asked to give us your unique order number (eg. 10245) that you receive when your group registers for the competition.
