Benefits: cash prizes
The Fentress Global Challenge is an international student design competition that was launched by Curtis Fentress in 2011. Over 1,000 entries from 77 countries competed in the inaugural competition, which resulted in three winners. In addition to an increased number of entrants each year, there has also been a steady rise in the quality of submittals. This competition represents an extraordinary exploration into the future of architecture and in so doing, has helped advance the pursuit of innovative design in public architecture.
While it hasn’t always been the case, airports—terminal buildings, in particular—have become the area of study for this competition. Participants are tasked with choosing an existing airport and envisioning how its terminals will look and function in a distant future year. Submissions must consider local context, technological trends, project feasibility, and passenger experience
The Fentress Global Challenge (FGC) competition is open to graduate and undergraduate students who are currently pursuing architecture or engineering degrees in an accredited university program, as well as recent graduates (within the last four years) with a degree in architecture or engineering.
Students must provide proof of active enrollment status: a scanned copy of their student ID and current course schedule. Recent graduates must provide a scanned copy of their diploma.
USD 10,000 Cash + Event
The top prize includes US$10,000 cash and the opportunity to accompany Curt Fentress to a prestigious architectural event where you will receive your award.
