Autodesk and USGBC Announce Multifamily Midrise Design Competition

Autodesk and USGBC Announce Multifamily Midrise Design Competition

Autodesk, Inc., a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, announced at the AIA 2011 National Convention in New Orleans that it has partnered with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to sponsor the organization’s Multifamily Midrise Design Competition. The contest is geared to provide design professionals and students with a unique opportunity to present their solutions to sustainable, multifamily midrise design.

Design professionals and students are invited to submit their ideas for a new four-to-six-story residential mixed-use building/complex, in combination with a gut-rehab renovation and recommissioning of an adjacent existing building. Specifically, competition entrants will be tasked with delivering ideas for reenergizing the 1300 block of Oretha C. Haley Boulevard between Thalia and Erato streets in New Orleans via design and adaptive reuse architecture, with consideration given to the former elementary school that still stands on the grounds.

For more information, please go to the competition’s official website.
