The student competition calls for open submission designs for any building type larger than 100,000 square feet (9,300 square meters). Topics of interest include achieving sustainability through integrated design, construction and operation of buildings; energy generation, conservation; health issues; climate issues; water and wastewater; waste management; assessing building sustainability; material choice and selection; design vs. operation and ways to achieve net zero-energy buildings. Preference will be given to project with complex requirements, such as building types, climatic characteristics, use of advanced building systems and technologies, and those that demonstrate innovation and design excellence.
