DESIGN A NET ZERO ENERGY, MIXED-USE BUILDING
WHAT: This year’s competition calls for architectural students and interns to design a net zero energy, mixed-use, multifamily building in the heart of Portland, Oregon. Group and individual entries will be judged based on the criteria of resourcefulness, replicability, and beauty. Adaptability (future proofing) and the project’s triple bottom line will also be considered. The perFORM jury will distribute $6,000 in cash awards, and award winners will receive publication online and in print, as well as public display of their boards in Portland and Seattle.
WHO: Architectural students (at NAAB or CACB accredited schools) and architectural interns based in the US and Canada. Both group and individual entries are welcome and will be judged by a jury consisting of practicing architects, design educators, and builders. Professor Peter Keyes of the University of Oregon Department of Architecture will be serving as the perFORM 2015 advisor.
