  • Undergraduate - Global
Who's Eligible

The competition is open to designers, engineers and house builders as well as architects therefore professional status (registration as an architect) is not a necessity. It is however a necessity to be a student to enter the student competition. I hope you understand we have a commitment to work with academic institutions and promote social and humanitarian design agendas, it would not be fair on the students if we accepted graduates into the category. We would welcome your submission to the professional category.

Important Dates
  • Final date for registration: 30th June 2012
  • Closing date for all submissions: 31st July 2012
  • Announcement of winners to be posted on 15th August 2012
