A student competition to transform the course of design in the age of climate change. Climate change is the design challenge of our time.
Submit your vision for an adaptive, resilitent, and carbon-neutral future.
Architects play a critical role in addressing both the causes and effects of climate change. Design is the key to producing a built environment that adapts to projected climate impacts, protects inhabitants during unanticipated stresses, and produces no greenhouse gas emissions.
INNOVATION 2030 is the title and theme of the 2017-2018 COTE Top Ten for Students design competition, presented by AIA COTE and ASCA, in special collaboration with Architecture 2030 and Design Intelligence.
Students are invited to submit design projects that meaningfully address the causes of climate change and anticipate its future impacts, well into the second half of this century.
