2009 Open Architecture Challenge

International design competition run by Architecture for Humanity and Orient Global — asks designers “to work with students and teachers to design the classroom of the future for a school of your choosing.”

Click the image above for more information. Registration deadline is May 1  – 2009, and the submission deadline is one month later.

[ Let’s get started ]

We are inviting you, the designer, to work with students and teachers to design the classroom of the future for a school of your choosing. Your design should address the unique challenges your school faces in trying to provide smart, safe and sustainable learning spaces. Students and teachers, here’s your chance to tell the world what you need to make your classroom more effective. Architects and designers, you’ll work one-on-one with students to translate those needs into better classroom design.

* Share your design expertise and inspire school students to re-imagine their classroom
* Help students learn about the built environment using a companion design curriculum
* Become an advocate for better classroom design in your community

If your design wins, your school will receive up to $50,000 in funding for classroom construction and upgrading. You will receive a grant of $5,000 to help them do it.
