The Fentress Global Challenge is an annual international competition created to engage students worldwide in the exploration of future design possibilities in public architecture. For the Second annual competition, students are invited to envision the Workplace of the Future. Workplace research confirms that space management is a powerful tool. Office environments designed to deliver optimal employee experience will, in turn, offer the greatest operational value. These returns are far beyond financial; they promote performance, productivity and innovation. Our economy relies on productivity, so it is important to evaluate the most cost-effective, space-effective and operationally-effective workplace.
All students presently enrolled in a recognized college level Architectural or Interior Design program are invited to participate. Graduates that are not employed may also enter the competition. Individuals and teams are both eligible.
