Third Wednesday of the month, 5:30 - 7:00 PM
2022 Ideas Competition
Moving Beyond Ad-Hoc, Hacked, and Underfunded.
How can we design purposeful spaces that serve the whole student and support student success?
Academic institutions at all levels are asked to serve myriad roles to students beyond "the educator"- they can be the doctor, cook, counselor, social worker, babysitter, mentor, or even employer. As we move out of the pandemic some of these roles have become increasingly important, not only for students but also for the communities they live in.
Current educational spaces don't often work to provide these services in an equitable, safe, and comfortable environment. They also don't invite the community in as clients or collaborators for these services.
Community engagement processes
Futures for academic institutions at all levels from kindergarten to university to lifelong learners
Winning projects will be featured in a panel discussion on Wednesday, September 21, from 12 to 1 pm Pacific in conjunction with the 19th Annual Architecture + the City Festival.
Entry fees are non-refundable. Submissions must be fully completed and entered on or before the Early Submission Deadline in order to qualify for the discounted submission fees rates.
Submission is fully electronic through the portal. Entrants are encouraged to submit support materials in a variety of formats, which might include digital or hand drawings, images of 3-dimensional models, video, or other formats.
The 2022 Jury will be revealed soon, stay tuned!
