Summer Design Competition 2021

June 09, 2021

Tulane School of Architecture is hosting its second annual Summer Design Competition through Instagram, starting June 9. The TuSA Summer Design Competition will cover seven categories of representation styles, design, making and art. Seven juries of school faculty will vote each week for the top five winners, and prizes will be awarded.  

The competition is open to incoming, current, and newly graduated students (Class of 2021). This includes students who are minoring in programs at the school and who have taken courses via programs run by the school.  

To submit an entry, students must post their single image/animation/photo entry on their Instagram account, indicate the competition category they are entering, and tag @tulanearch and #TulaneDesignCompetition. The entry post must be made during the week of the designated competition category. The competition is limited to one entry per student, per category.  The entry must be work created by the student. This could be new work or previous work produced in the last year or more. Finalists will be asked (via private message on Instagram) to verify their student status by providing their full name,  Tulane ID number, and Tulane email address. 

The first place winners of each category will receive a $100 prize. The four additional finalists of each category will receive $50 prizes. Prizes will be given in the form of direct payments to current students and honoraria to newly graduated students.  

The faculty jurors include: Errol Barron, Michael Dalle Molle, Rubén García Rubio, Irene Keil, Nick LiCausi, Wendy Redfield, Catherine Restrepo, Kenneth Schwartz, Emilie Taylor Welty, and Ann Yoachim.  The juries will not receive student names, only the work submitted.
