A new creative design competition hosted by Dwell and James Hardie.
Titled “Playhaus,” this competition challenges designers to create a children’s playhouse. However the designer’s mission is to think beyond the typical playhouse prototype—dollhouses, pirate ships—and develop a structure that is daring, decadent and chic. The design should turn the heads of slow passersby, and be the envy of fun-loving kids and sophisticated parents alike.
And because the grand prize is $10,000, we thought this would be a unique and fun opportunity for SCAD Architecture students and faculty.
All of the details, rules and regulations can be found at dwell.com/playhaus. The deadline is Sept. 30.

Come to the reception and ask architecture student Dubem Aniebonam what it all means to exercise your gray matter!
On March 4th at noon, foundation studies will hold a reception for the completion of a Design/Build project at Boundary Hall. Ms. Aniebonam created a design in her 3D Design class last winter that was chosen to be fabricated at 15 feet tall. We are very proud of Ms. Aniebonam and encourage everyone to attend and support this outstanding opportunity.
The AIA Young Architects Forum (YAF) and the AIA Committee on Design (COD) invites architects, students, and allied design professionals to submit sketches to the international 2011 YAF/COD Ideas Competition.
In this unique sketch competition, submitters are asked to explore the principles of Universal Design as well as their overlap with values of social and environmental sustainability.
Winners will be announced and will have their work exhibited at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2011 National Convention and Design Exposition in New Orleans, Louisiana, May 12-14, 2011. Selected entries will be displayed on the AIA website.

Inspired by the recent trajectory of thought and action demonstrated by the IOC and IPC, the American Institute of Architects invites designers to participate in a design competition intended to build upon the efforts of the past decade by proposing a vision for Tokyo’s bid for the 2020 Games that is guided not only by socially- and environmentally-sustainable principles, but also by the principles of Universal Design.
Universal Design has been defined as “the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.” This definition was developed by Ron Mace, FAIA, an architect and the founder of the Center for Universal Design at N.C. State University. In recent years, architects and designers in the US and abroad have come to recognize significant and growing overlaps between Universal Design principles and emerging values of social and environmental sustainability.
This year’s design problem, to create a master plan for the Olympic Village and a design for a representative mixed-use building that includes athlete housing, will provide entrants with the opportunity to explore these overlaps. Successful solutions will demonstrate a commitment to Universal Design, as well as social and environmental sustainability, throughout the Village during its Olympic, Paralympic, and Legacy modes by creating designs that will allow the Village to play a vital role in the ongoing development of the City of Tokyo-not only for the short-term as athletes’ housing during the Games, but also for the long-term as a catalyst for infrastructural revitalization once the Games have closed.
Entries may be submitted anytime between January 14, 2011 and March 14, 2011. All submissions should contain original content only. All entries must be submitted without identifying marks, including logos, text, insignia, or images on the display surface that could be used to identify the submission’s authors.
The AIA will have the right to use all information and materials submitted to display in exhibitions and publications to publicize the Competition, including but not limited to the following:
* A gallery display at the AIA 2011 National Convention and Design Exposition in New Orleans, Louisiana;
Entrants will be expected to complete and return copyright release forms. In addition, each entrant will be required to sign a declaration that neither the entrant individually nor any firm of which the entrant is an owner or manager employs unpaid interns, including working students.
Monday, March 14, 2011 at 5pm
Thursday, May 12, 2011 at 8pm
The submission deadline will be strictly observed; no exceptions will be made.
No entry fee will be refunded for any entries, including those that are disqualified, late, or not completed. Payment information will be collected on the online registration form.
