Leading Edge Student Design Competition

Leading Edge Student Design Competition

The Leading Edge Student Design Competition seeks to support and enhance the study of sustainable and energy-efficient building practices in Architectural Education. We invite students and instructors of Architecture and Design to use the competition as a framework to explore the use of new materials and strategies for building and the integration of aesthetics and technology for high-performing, cutting edge architecture.

This year the competition focuses on the coastal city of Long Beach, California. Students entering Challenge 1 will design a zero-net energy Workforce Training Center; students entering Challenge 2 will design a zero-net energy Student Residence. A zero-net energy building generates enough on-site renewable energy to equal or exceed the amount of energy needed to operate the building.

More information on submission and requirements on the competition’s official website. Seen at Architecture Week.
