The tenth annual iteration of this international ideas competition continues the tradition of calling for design strategies to help shape the welfare of our citizens and cities through the built environment. This year, the challenge focuses on the design of a high-rise curtain wall constructed with the highest possible efficiency properties, serviceability characteristics, and recyclability of constituent parts. A $15,000 grand prize will be awarded to the design deemed by the jury to be most innovative and aesthetically appealing while meeting these goals.
