2017 Student Competition Information

This year the BauHow student competition will work a bit differently.  There will be three winners chosen from across all schools.  Each winner will receive a scholarship to the overnight version of Design Camp at NC State University's College of Design in Raleigh July 23-29, 2017.

1.  Submissions must come from students who are rising 11th or 12th graders (current 10th and 11th graders) at the schools above.

2.  Submit here by 5pm Friday, February 24, 2017.  Students are required to submit a floor plan, a front elevation, and one additional interior or exterior elevation. Additionally, an axon drawing or 3-D model may be submitted to better convey the student's design.  All CAD files must be exported and converted into a .jpg or .jpeg file format.  The submission link will ONLY except .jpg files. Winners will be notified by March 1 and have to be fully registered with NCSU's Design Camp within two weeks.

3.  This year's design challenge is to review houses designed by George Matsumoto (reference examples can be found here) and create a 1800-2400 sf house for a family of four that honors his underlying design principles and elements without copying them.
