Design and Build 2023 Challenge
Coming soon…

We are currently making some exciting improvements to the program and will announce details about the 2023 competition this spring. We expect this year’s entry deadline will be late Fall 2023.


The competition is currently open to any undergraduate or graduate student or student team currently enrolled in any US university (recent graduates are eligible to enter for up to one year post graduation). Students should be studying in the field of art, architecture, landscape architecture, design, engineering, and/or other programs that focus on creativity. Entries can be submitted by individuals, teams, or as classes. Collaborative designs are highly desired. Past competition winners must observe a one-year sit out period prior to being eligible to enter future competitions.

New in 2023: International teams are eligible to enter, however, the team must include at least one US citizen. All entries must be submitted in English and utilize the imperial system of measurement.
