The Young Architects Forum of Atlanta invites emerging architects, landscape architects, urban designers, industrial designers and students to participate in the fifth annual 48HRS design competition. Intended to showcase the abilities of emerging designers and the value of good design to the greater public, the competition requires quick responses and fast, innovative thinking. The project brief, which will pose a design problem located in the city of Atlanta, remains confidential until the start of the competition. Once the brief is announced, participants have 48 hours to design and submit their entries.
The competition is open to all types of designers (up to 10 years after licensure) and participants must register in advance. Registration numbers will be assigned upon payment of the entry fee of $50.00 (early) or $75.00 (late). On January 3rd, registrants will be provided with a “Program Packet” which includes all the details of the competition problem. A 24 hour period has been allotted for participants to submit questions at www.aiaatl.org/about/our-blog with all answers to be posted by the competition organizers prior to 5 pm on January 4th.
