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.
