Category II: OPEN


The ACSA/AISC 2016-2017 Steel Design Student Competition offers architecture students the opportunity to participate in an open competition with limited restrictions. This category will allow the students (with the approval of the sponsoring faculty member) to select a site and building program. 

The Category II program should be of equal complexity as the Category I program. Submissions entering Category II must submit a written building program along with the online final submission.



To enter the open competition students may select any building occupancy other than a Museum.  The structure must have at least one space requiring long span steel structure.
