2021 ACSA/AISC Steel Design Student Competition

The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture invites you to participate in the 21st Annual Steel Design Student Competition for the 2020-2021 academic year. The competition is intended to challenge undergraduate and graduate students, working individually or in teams, to explore a variety of design issues related to the use of steel in design and construction. Steel must be used as the primary structural material and contain at least one space that requires long-span steel structure, with special emphasis placed on innovation in steel design.

JAE 74:2 Othering

For this thematic issue, we set out to explore othering. Our lofty aim was to support a politics of freedom and reason in architecture—the search for forms of justice—in a way that does not undercut its own emancipatory impulse. For it is all too obvious that the political and activist concerns animating scholarship and design today necessarily induce multiple otherings. Architecture, as a critical practice, distinguishes, labels, valorizes, and categorizes people, institutions, codes, and norms.

TAD 4:2 Matter

Materials – and their alchemical transformations through construction – have long been the subject of intense study and thoughtful deliberation by practitioners and researchers. This issue asks: How are current material investigations responding to rapid climate change and the imperative for sustainability? What methodologies are researchers using to explore and test materials? How are designers, material scientists, and others engaging in material innovation, developing patents, and influencing business practices? How are emergent materials and cyber-physical processes altering the arc of architecture and design?

Hispanic and Latinx in Architecture chronicles both societal and discipline specific metrics in an effort to highlight the experiences of Hispanic and Latinx designers, architects and educators.

Inspired by the data visualizations created by W.E.B. Du Bois in 1900, the first research report in the series, Black in Architecture, highlights metrics to help both the profession and the academy understand what it means to navigate architecture as a Black person.

The farther up you look in the world of architecture, the fewer women you see. We’ve rounded up some publicly available metrics behind this claim, in order to examine them more closely.

This report investigates current and historical metrics of institutional effectiveness and details more than 530 architecture degree programs.

The Journal of Architectural Education (JAE) is a biannual peer-reviewed academic journal, and the primary venue for research and commentary on architectural education.

Technology | Architecture + Design (TAD) is a biannual peer-­reviewed international journal dedicated to the advancement of scholarship in the field of building technology and its translation, integration, and impact on architecture and design.
