Registration open for Boston's first Design Build Challenge
Registration is now open for Boston's first Design Build Challenge!
The Design Build Challenge is a national design and construction competition that focuses on built responses to community needs. The event will take place June 18 - 21st, as part of Common Boston Weekend, Boston's only free, public festival of community and design. The festival theme this year is "Designing a livable city for families." Participants in the Design Build Challenge will have 72 hours to design and create projects that encourage community participation within a dense urban environment and benefit families living in the city.
Teams and individuals from around the country and from all disciplines and experience levels are encouraged to participate. Competitors will be asked to work with to-be-announced clients and sites to find design solutions addressing the social, economic, and environmental benefits of city life. The challenge aims to prove that, even when created in just three days, an influential and sustainable response to a real problem can alter our urban fabric and benefit the community.
The registration deadline is June 3rd.

Looks like unspecified prize may be the accumulated entry fees. Will this dog hunt?
