ANNOUNCEMENTCIRT National Design and Construction Competition Opens

Sept. 27, 2017 - The twelfth annual CIRT National Design and Construction Competition, which is coordinated with the ACE Mentor Program of America and the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF), went “live” today as part of a nation-wide announcement that was disseminated to ACE Affiliates. Again, this year, the competition will utilize a digital platform hosted by CAF to enable teams to not only submit their entries through the web-based portal, but also to have the option of actually working collaboratively online as they develop their projects. ACE Teams are invited to submit their proposals for one of three challenge options: (i) Flexible Home; (ii) Revitalize an Urban Block; or (iii) Envisioning an Ideal School. Final submissions are due by March 7, 2018; with three national finalists squaring-off in a live presentation round at the CIRT Spring Conference in Washington, DC on Monday, April 30, 2018.
