2022 DESIGN CHALLENGE

For its 2022 competition, the Metals in Construction magazine Design Challenge will generate ideas for an innovative kind of curtain wall enclosure that can act dynamically in response to a wide range of environmental conditions.

The challenge’s $15,000 Grand Prize will be awarded to the design most innovative in its approach, and effective in its potential, for year-round control of indoor environmental conditions, enhanced resilience, constructability, and a near zero-carbon building perimeter.
