Access to quality education is the foundation of a thriving middle class and a functional democracy; it is one of the most important pieces of social infrastructure to any community. Creating equal access to education has been seen as an intractable problem. Local Architects have untapped creative solutions to problems that are unique to their communities.
USA Architects in collaboration with CG/LA is proud to announce a design competition with the goal to create a community of local Architects across the region, promoting new and creative ideas and increasing access to education through thoughtful design.

Entrants will be asked to select a project site and design a building or structure that will be judged on the categories below.
