Blue_awards_01Organized by the Faculty of Architecture at the Vienna University of Technology, the Department of Spatial and Sustainable Design, the BLUE AWARD, an international student competition for sustainable architecture. Submissions will be accepted starting November 10 and is open to architecture students worldwide!

Sustainable development, with its economical, cultural and social dimensions in architecture and urbanism, should be given the same value and attention as the classical problems of technique and function. The language of contemporary architecture is to experience a fundamental change under this influence.

Top Student Green Chair Designs to Be Showcased by Vern Yip in Washington, D.C. Print E-mail
Wednesday, 15 July 2009 07:54

Back in May this year, the American Institute of Architecture Students and the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) announced the top six winners of the fourth student design competition. Sponsored by the ICPF and administered by the AIAS, the program challenged students, working individually or in teams, to explore a variety of issues related to the use of corrugated board (a non-traditional building material) in design and construction and production. The competition was developed in part to introduce architecture and structural design students to green, structural design careers in the corrugated packaging and display industry. This spring's competition attracted architecture and package design students from 49 colleges and universities throughout North America.

Green building design challenge - Contest to reward designs that save resources and costs Print E-mail
Saturday, 27 June 2009 10:01

Announced back in December, the Lifecycle Building Challenge competition, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and partners are inviting the nation’s architects, product developers, educators, environmental leaders, and students to submit innovative designs that minimize waste, reuse materials, and cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Ideas generated by the contest help jumpstart the building industry toward diverting the more than 100 million tons of building-related construction and demolition debris sent each year to landfills in the United States. This free, Web-based competition supports an on-line library of competition entries and green building resources.

The “Lifecycle Building Challenge 3” – co-sponsored by the EPA, American Institute of Architects, West Coast Green, the Collaborative for High Performance Schools, StopWaste.Org, and WasteCap Wisconsin – invites professionals and students nationwide to submit designs and ideas by August 30 that support cost-effective disassembly and anticipate future reuse of building materials.
The challenge, open to built and un-built projects has two main categories:

* Building—an entire building from foundation to roof
* Product—building products or materials

Outstanding entries in each category will be recognized and publicized in national journals and at conferences nationwide. The competition’s partners will also recognize exceptional entries in two other Outstanding Achievement Awards: Best Greenhouse Gas Reduction Design and Best School Design.

“This competition recognizes innovators who are pushing the envelope to protect the environment through green building design,” said Jeff Scott, the EPA’s Waste Division director for the Pacific Southwest region. “Designing buildings using more sustainable materials and preventing waste helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protects our environment.”

Lifecycle building maximizes material recovery to reverse the trend of disposing large quantities of construction and demolition debris in landfills. In the United States, buildings use 60 percent of all materials (excluding food and fuel) and account for 33 percent of the solid waste stream. Building renovation and demolition accounts for 91 percent of the construction and demolition debris generated each year, while new construction accounts for only 9 percent. Between 2000 to 2030, it is expected that 27 percent of existing buildings will be replaced and 50 percent of the total building stock will be constructed.

Deconstruction addresses these issues by planning for a building or building component's eventual reuse. By creating building components that can be easily recovered, materials are kept at their highest value, resulting in reduced energy and resource consumption.

Reusing building components reduces the energy and greenhouse gases emissions associated with extracting, producing and transporting materials.

At the end of the competition, expert judges will determine the best entries in each category and the winners will be recognized in the fall.

Zerofootprint Building Re-Skinning Competition Print E-mail
Thursday, 11 June 2009 12:07

The competition intends to advance the state-of-the-art in retrofitting buildings. It is known how to retrofit a single building, but there are no existing solutions for retrofitting an entire city. Buildings alone are responsible for nearly 40% of North America’s greenhouse gases: 79% in New York, and 63% in Toronto.

The Zerofootprint Building Re-Skinning Competition aims to reduce these emissions by producing a method that can be scaled to buildings in cities worldwide.

The Competition Timeline:
•    September 1, 2009: Deadline for submission of designs
•    September 30, 2009: Judging completed, 5 finalists selected
•    March 31, 2011: Finalist project construction completed
•    March 31, 2014: Energy monitoring completed, Z-Prize winner announced.

WHO: Joint effort by AIA Board Knowledge Committee and the AIA College of Fellows.

WHAT:
The AIA seeks proposals for research projects to be completed in an 18-month period beginning December 1, 2009. The AIA will award up to four grants between $15,000 and $30,000 each, for selected projects. The requested funds must be hard dollar matched with a maximum of 10 percent of funds going towards overheard (i.e. indirect) costs. All submissions this year must be blind. Preferences will be given to proposals that have teams comprising of both academics and practitioners. A panel of seven professionals from the AIA Board Knowledge Committee and the AIA College of Fellows—which includes representatives of both the academic community and the profession—will evaluate each submission and select grant awardees. This grant qualifies recipients to have their findings and outcomes published both electronically and in a nationally distributed publication.
