Scope:Regional

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

This is an exciting competition where high school students put their design skills, creativity, spatial and analytical thinking and craftsmanship to the test. With the guidance of instructors, high school students design a building and communicate their design solutions through drawings and models. All high school students in both public and private schools in the greater San Francisco Bay Area are encouraged to participate. This competition provides young thinkers with the opportunity to participate in what is a very unique learning project.

There are three ways in which you may choose to enter the competition: as a Single Entry participant, as a Group Entry participant and as a Digital Entry participant. Note that depending on which option you choose, you will only be eligible for certain awards. Students may choose to enter as both a Single or Group Entry participant and as a Digital Entry participant. SINGLE ENTRY REQUIRED DELIVERABLES:

  1. DRAWINGS I Provide the following presentation drawings:
    1. Floor plan(s) of your building: 1/4” = 1’-0” scale -- Include furniture, room names, and north arrow.
    2. One elevation of your building: 1/4” = 1’-0” scale -- Elevation view that best describes your design, include at least one person for scale.
    3. One building section of your building: 1/4” = 1’-0” scale -- Section view that best describes your design, include at least person for scale.
    4. One site plan: 1/32” = 1’-0” scale -- Include the building and surrounding site. Label all site elements and include a north arrow.
  2. MODEL: Build one physical presentation architectural model of your building design at 1/4” = 1’-0” scale.
  3. DESIGN DESCRIPTION: Provide the following design description:
    1. Design Solution Title I Give a title to your design that best describes your design solution and strategy.
    2. Design Narrative I Compose a thoughtful and concise description of your design solution and strategy. This may include your design inspiration and what you are trying to achieve with your design. This is your opportunity to articulate any other ideas that you may have that aren’t as easy to read from your drawings and models alone such as building material choices or site ideas relative to the greater master plan. Your narrative should be no more than 500 words and should be typed or neatly hand printed and mounted on the front side of the presentation drawing board along with the drawings.
Again, focus on articulation what your “big idea” concept is for this project.
