AIAS/Kawneer Crisis Ready Stadium Student Design Competition
“The visible effects of the changing climate make civic design a whole new game.” The fabric of community is often developed around the spaces in which we congregate. Stadium, civic center, arena; regardless of the name the venue at which we join together to engage in large scale social activities become one of the cornerstones of our community, and a rallying point in times of need. This last aspect was made vibrantly clear during the immediate aftermath of hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. The Superdome, while physically large enough to handle the influx of the community that needed a place to rest, was ill prepared to act as even temporary lodging.
The realities of climate change and the importance of designing and building in such a manner that is resilient in all forms of benign and hostile weather are critical factors facing the architects of tomorrow. The Stadium, a place where we join together to engage in large scale social activities, has become one of the cornerstones of our community, and a rallying point in times of need. This competition asks of emerging designers to find ways stadiums can be utilized to serve as not only centers of entertainment but havens of refuge during times of need, during crisis, looking at stadiums as the critical component to any community, the critical mass we can gravitate to in times of need.
* Alternative space uses in the event of crisis and non-crisis
* ADA Requirements

Criteria and Guidelines
Hometown Heroes are regular SCAD Students and Student Ambassadors who volunteer to visit their former high schools and colleges when they are home to share their love of SCAD with prospective students. They sign up in advance and are armed with some training and educator packets for their visit. Hometown Heroes are not asked to represent admission, or answer admission questions. They are there to get students excited about SCAD by sharing their personal experience and showing examples of their work. These show and tell visits are not only an effective way to recruit new students, but also a rewarding experience for current students. The visits are an excellent opportunity to practice public speaking and professionalism skills.
The Hometown Hero program is open to all current students, from freshmen to graduate students that are interested in sharing their SCAD experiences with prospective students. This year, we are trying to recruit more than three hundred students to participate.
If you are interested in participating with Hometown Heroes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information.

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.
