Airport Of The Future Global Challenge


Deadline: October 01, 2017

Started in 2011, the Fentress Global Challenge is an annual international competition created to engage young architects in the exploration of future design possibilities in public architecture. For 2017, students are invited to envision “The Airport of the Future.”

Participants are encouraged to re-envision the terminal building in the year 2075, taking into consideration local context, technological trends, project feasibility and passenger experience. In line with the speculative nature of the competition, participants should seek to improve every dimension of the airport terminal building. All entries should delve into one or more broad topics related to airport architecture and the future of aviation such as urbanization, globalization, technology, flexibility, security, and adaptability.

The top prize includes US$5,000 cash, a four-week paid internship at Fentress Architects, airfare, lodging and certificate, a value of $15,000. Second and third prizes include 3,000 USD and 2,000 USD respectively.

The competition is open to graduate and undergraduate students across the world who are currently pursuing architecture or engineering degrees at an accredited university program, as well as recent graduates (within the last four years) with a degree in architecture or engineering.
