In the context of an ancient city, the contest aims to imagine the new Museum of Culture, a catalyst of tradition that can better represent the historical elements that make up the identity of the city. Exhibitions, local craft halls and an art workshop laboratory will connect visitors and the public to create new synergies. The Matera Museum will combine the traditions of the past with contemporary needs.
ACSA seeks proposals from architecture students and faculty at ACSA Full and Candidate member schools for the design of a Study Architecture exhibit booth and interactive experience for the 2018 USA Science and Engineering Festival. The 10 x 10 foot booth should reflect the branding and messages of ACSA's Study Architecture and #IMadeThat campaigns. The proposed activities within the booth should engage visitors in understanding how architects and architecture school graduates use science, technology, engineering, and math to design the world.

Marstopia challenges architects, designers and visionaries to engage with the hot topic of life on Mars, inviting them to conceptualize their visions of Marstopia and opening up the debate of Martian colonization to the creative fields. Do you see Martian living as an exciting prospect, or as a step too far? Is living on Mars an inspiring Utopia or a questionable Dystopia? Whatever your stance, this competition provides a platform for creative expression on the future of design and architecture beyond our planet. Marstopia is open to all creatives - both professionals and/or students - from around the world.
Architecture at Zero is a zero net energy design competition open to students and professionals worldwide, engaging architecture, engineering, and planning students and professionals in the pursuit of energy efficient design. This year's competition is a science education facility in Tiburon, California. Student registration is free.
The challenge is to create a zero net energy bayside community education and visitor's center supporting the mission of the center based in Tiburon. The competition has two components. First, entrants will create an overall site plan to accommodate the program. Entrants are encouraged to highlight any energy efficiency strategies or systems shown. Second, entrants will design two buildings in detail, to indicate zero net energy (ZNE) performance. In order to demonstrate the building design and its performance, entrants will provide required documentation and may also include supplementary documentation.
