Competition Description: Today’s students will face a future of serious concerns intermixed with technological progress, and they will have the opportunity to solve problems through the design of the built environment. With an expected global population of 15-20 billion and environmental issues in the 22nd century, extensive planning will be needed to predict and design the megacities of the future.

Through this competition, K-12 students will help answer the question: “What will 22nd century buildings, bridges, or cities look like?”
