City of Flint Municipal Center design competition, Genesee County, Michigan, USA

(1 July 2022: registration deadline)

31 July 2022: entry deadline

City of Flint Municipal Center design competition

The American Institute of Architects–Flint has announced a conceptual design competition for the City of Flint’s mid-century modern Municipal Center.

The 23-acre campus is split between seven government office buildings on the North side of Stevens Street, with a gas station, pawn shop, and vacant office building on the South side of the street. Currently the site is underutilized and much of the interior space of the buildings is unoccupied.

The focus of the competition is to develop the site into a vibrant, mixed use, walkable community that will spur greater public use and bring further investment to the downtown area. While the AIA acknowledges the site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2019 for its representation of International Style architecture, this should not limit the designer as to their proposal.

The participant should propose a design solution that they think makes the best use of the site to accommodate the design requirements, whether that is through renovation of the existing buildings or redevelopment of the entire campus.

Register by July 1; the deadline for entries is July 31, 2022.

Download the design brief and instructions.

City of the Future Urban Design Competition, Belfast

Take Back the City Coalition is launching an international competition for architects, planners and urban design consultants to submit a design to transform Belfast’s largest publicly owned site. With the potential for 950 gentle density homes in the area of highest social housing need in Belfast, entrants are being encouraged to submit design concepts to help transform the site formerly occupied by Mackies, once one of West Belfast’s largest employers.

The Drawing Board Competition

The Drawing Board is an international competition for architecture students held every year by Rohan Builders and Mindspace Architects.

What is The Drawing Board Competition?

The fundamental goal of this work is to provide a platform for students to grasp the crucial role played by architecture in determining the way communities grow. It was conceived as an attempt to provide architectural students with real-world design issues in real-world settings.

There are two phases to the competition. Students are required to submit their design presentations online in the first phase. In the second stage, the top eight entries, as determined by a panel of judges, are given the opportunity to present themselves in person to an architectural jury. Soumitra Ghosh, Naresh Medappa, Bijoy Ramachandran, Rahul Kadri, Sanjay Patil, Prasanna Desai, Rahul Gore, Takaharu Tezuka, Bijoy Jain, Neelkanth Chhaya, Peter Stutchbury, and Rupali Gupte have all been a part of this initiative in the previous years.

Response to this competition in the last six years has been very inspiring, with over 5000+ students registering from 500+ colleges from 40+ countries, including India. To learn more about us, please visit or follow us on Instagram at

Why do we do this?

Thoughtful and sensitive architecture has been the soul of all our delivered projects. The goodwill and credibility that ROHAN has built over the past 29 years has been heavily dependent on all our architects. With this initiative, we intend to do our bit to facilitate and encourage young minds in the field of architecture and shall always remain grateful to everyone for their support.

TDB 2022

This year’s design challenge is in honour of Ar. Charles Correa, an architect who is known across the globe.

Miami Floating Housing Competition 2022

Miami is facing two major emergencies.

First, it has become the least affordable US city to live in. Its housing stock has been depleted by its quickly growing population, accelerated by more people moving during the recent pandemic. Recent reports suggest nearly 1000 people are moving to Florida each day. New developments are pushing rental rates and costs of housing higher, making areas now unaffordable, and pricing people out of their neighborhoods.

More about the category – Best Use of Concrete Technology

This category will reward the exemplar use of precast concrete in a project across any UK construction sector.

Special attention will be given to material performance levels and any project should clearly demonstrate how cost-predictability, economy, accuracy, transportability, speed of installation and principles of lean manufacture have been achieved.

Last year’s winners – Kier Integrated Team – New Build Prison at Wellingborough

Wellingborough is the perfect blend of digital and DfMA advancement; providing direct project benefits, wider economic gains, as well as programme-wide improvements through standardisation, digital integration and MMC leaving a legacy that will transform the way the Ministry of Justice deliver future prisons.
