2021 AISC/ACSA Steel Design Student Competition

April 7, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT


The 21st Annual Steel Design Student Competition challenges undergraduate and graduate students, working individually or in teams, to explore a variety of design issues related to the use of steel in design and construction. Steel must be used as the primary structural material and contain at least one space that requires long-span steel structure, with special emphasis placed on innovation in steel design. The 2021 Steel Design Student Competition will offer architecture students the opportunity to compete in two separate categories:

  • Category I: Workplace Wellness challenges architecture students to rethink the nature of working in a post-pandemic era and how to design for holistic physical and mental wellness for all the building’s inhabitants. We are asking you to go beyond the traditionally held singular focus on worker productivity and think about environments where everyone is safe and thrives.
  • Category II: Open offers architecture students the opportunity to select a site and building program using steel as the primary material. This competition category permits the greatest amount of flexibility for any building type.

Winning students and their faculty sponsors will receive cash prizes totaling $20,000!

Faculty must register their students by April 7th, 2021.

Register your students today!

Registration Deadline: April 7th, 2021 (must be completed by ACSA Faculty)
Submission Deadline: June 2, 2021 (must be completed by student)

The competition hosted by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) and sponsored by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).
