Category II: OPEN


Architecture Students have the opportunity to participate in an open category 


Category II  OPEN

The ACSA/AISC 2017-2018 Steel Design Student Competition offers architecture students the opportunity to participate in an open competition category with limited restrictions.

This category will allow the students (with the approval of a faculty sponsor) to select a site and building program of anything other than a Detention Center. The selected program should be at a minimum of equal complexity as the Category I program. The design should also be guided by the principles of innovation, creativity, identity, sustainability, functionality and efficiency.

Students may not enter both categories of the competition
