Since the inception of ACSA’s Steel Design Student Competition 10 years ago, AISC has provided continued sponsorship support of the competition. In recognition of this partnership, ACSA presented AISC with an award at its 99th Annual Meeting held March 3-6 in Montreal.
The Steel Design Student Competition challenges students, working individually or in teams, to explore a variety of design issues and create innovations related to the use of steel in design and construction. Last year, about 450 students from 75 schools of architecture entered the competition, challenged to design “a retreat from real world diseases, promote healing, and foster a reconnection at the individual and collective levels.” You can view the winners on AISC’s web site here.

The 11th annual competition is now under way, with a Homeless Assistance Center as this year’s structured challenge. (There is also an “open” category.) Winners for the 2010-2011 academic year will be announced in July. Read more about the program on ACSA’s web site here.
