The Influence Charrette


Submission Deadline

Design October 15, 2017

Part competition and part case study, this charrette is broken into two phases. Each phase requires minimal effort from entrants, but participation in both is necessary to win any prize.

Phase 1 – The Competition: Submit the “hero” rendering from a project that most represents your personal design approach towards architecture. School projects, professional work or personal design exercises are all satisfactory. The idea in this phase is to submit a design with the least amount of client or outsider influence. This can be a new image you make for this Charrette or an existing image. There is no limit to how old this project is as long as it is yours.

There will be two separate voting sessions: one by our prestigious jury and one by the Charrette entrants. It is possible to win both the juried vote and the popular vote.

Phase 2 – The Case Study: Entrants and jury members will all take an online survey about the voting process. The survey should take 20-30 minutes. All responses will be anonymous.

Winners of Phase 1 will be announced publicly after both phases are completed. We will produce a publication with our findings from Phase 2. All entries will be highlighted in the publication. All entrants will receive a copy.
