The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat is proud to present the 10th International Student Design Competition, which is open to all students who are currently enrolled at the university level. The goal of the competition is to shed new light on the meaning and value of tall buildings in modern society. Participants are asked to engage with the exploration and resolution of the synergistic relationship between a tall building and its urban setting; how that tall building can be inspired by the cultural, physical, and environmental aspects of its site; how the program of the building is influenced by the micro and macro site/urban conditions; and how the building responds to global issues. Proposals are required to show evidence of a clear understanding of how considerations of structure, environment, servicing, etc. are as vital to the success of a tall building as the form, materials, aesthetics, etc.
Submissions are due by Monday 26 July 2021 (12:00 p.m. CST) and participants must register to participate by Monday 19 July 2021 (12:00 p.m. CST).
Questions may be directed to [email protected].
The competition consists of two juries. The first-round jury will narrow the submissions down to 15 Semi-Finalists. The second-round jury will narrow down the projects to the top five Finalists, and then select the winners from the Finalists. The members of the second-round jury will consist of prominent professionals, creating an international, multi-disciplinary group of tall building experts.
Full details of the Student Tall Building Design Competition, including submission requirements, criteria, and procedures can be found in the Competition Brief.
