Registration





  REGISTRATION      NEW ONLINE REGISTRATION COMING SOON! - Please Check-back Dec. 1st.

A faculty sponsor is required to enroll students online (available at www.acsa-arch.org) by April 3, 2019. Registration can be done for your entire studio or for each individual student or team of students participating. Students or teams wishing to enter the competition on their own must have a faculty sponsor, who should complete the registration. There is no entry or submission fee to participate in the competition. Each registered student and faculty sponsor will receive a confirmation email that will include information on how the student(s) will upload final submissions online. Please add the email address competitions@acsa-arch.org to your address book to ensure that you receive all emails regarding your submission.

During registration, the faculty will have the ability to add students, add teams, assign students to teams, and add additional faculty sponsors. Registration is required by April 3, 2019, but can be changed, edited, and added to until a student starts a final submission; then the registration is no longer editable.

PROGRAM SUMMARY

A program summary diagram/text of spaces and areas is required as part of the submission. All interior and exterior spaces are to be included; total net and gross areas are required.

FACULTY RESPONSIBILITY

The administration of the competition at each institution is left to the discretion of the faculty within the guidelines set forth in this document. Work on the competition should be structured over the course of one semester during the 2018-2019 academic year.

Each faculty sponsor is expected to develop a system to evaluate the students’ work using the criteria set forth in this program. The evaluation process should be an integral part of the design process, encouraging students to scrutinize their work in a manner similar to that of the jury.

ONLINE PROJECT SUBMISSION

The student is required to submit the final entries that must be uploaded through the ACSA Competition website at www.acsa-arch.org by 11:59 pm, Pacific Time, on May 22, 2019. If the submission is from a team of students, all student team members will have the ability to upload the digital files. Once the final submit button is pressed no additional edits, uploads, or changes can be made. You may “save” your submission and return to complete. Please note: The submission is not complete until the “complete this submission” button has been pressed. For team projects, each member of team projects may submit the final project, but each project should be submitted only once. Once the final submission is uploaded and submitted, each student will receive a confirmation email notification.

The final submission upload must contain the following:
  • Completed online registration including all team members and faculty sponsors,
  • Each of the four 20”x20” boards uploaded individually as a high resolution Portable Document Format (PDF) or image (JPEG) file,
  • A design essay or abstract,
  • A program summary diagram/text of spaces and areas (300 words maximum).
The names of student participants, their schools and faculty sponsors must NOT appear on the boards, abstract, program summary, or in the file name.
