2018-2019 TIMBER IN THE CITY: Urban Habitat Competition
International Student Design Competition
An online registration form must be completed for an entire team or for each individual participant. There is no registration fee to participate in the challenge. Each registered participant will receive a confirmation email that will include information for final online submission. Please add the email address firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to ensure that you receive all emails regarding your submission. The competition is open for currently enrolled students and requires a faculty sponsor from an ACSA member school to enroll students by completing an online registration form (available at www.acsa-arch.org) by April 3, 2019. Faculty sponsors must complete a form for the entire studio or for each individual student or team of students participating. Each student will receive a confirmation email that will include personal login information for final online submission. Students or teams wishing to enter the challenge on their own must have a faculty sponsor, who should complete the form.
During registration the faculty will have the ability to add students, add teams, assign students to teams, and add additional faculty. Registration is required by April 3, 2019, after which edits and additions can be made until a student starts a final submission, then the registration is not editable. Faculty may assign a “Faculty Representative” to a registered student, who will have access to change, edit, and make additions to the registration.
The administration of the competition at each institution is left to the discretion of the faculty within the guidelines set forth in this document. Research and design work on the competition should be structured over the course one or more semesters of the 2018-2019 academic year.
