Calling All Students!

GRAPHISOFT North America announces an exciting student design competition that challenges you to position Philadelphia’s rich history in front of the millions of tourists who visit it annually. The City of Brotherly Love hosts dozens of concerts, conventions, sporting events, and festivals – so the draw is there, but what the city lacks are temporary mobile visitor centers that can be brought to those venues and welcome event attendees.

In this national one-stage competition, all US-based architecture and interior design students (graduate or undergraduate) will be challenged to develop and design a mobile visitors center using shipping containers which could be constructed in various locations around the city of Philadelphia. You can use as many containers as you want. Make them portable, self-contained and interactive. Give the containers a way to respond to the various sites in which they could be situated. 

A total of $3,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place winners.
