BUILDING VOICES:  an ideas + action festival focused on DESIGN

This event, presented by University of Hawaii at Manoa School of Architecture, includes a symposium, competition/exhibition and partnered events that  gather political leaders, practitioners, faculty, students, and the community to talk about critical issues facing Hawaii.

The Building Voices Design Competition is a single-stage international design competition seeking innovative solutions that address Hawai‘i’s unique geographic location, cultural richness, global visibility, and ecological diversity.

  • We seek new ideas for buildings, environments, landscapes, community programs, infrastructures, product designs, network concepts, service design offerings, transportation solutions, among others.

  • Prototypical solutions should be uniquely suited for Hawai’i and shareable globally.

Entering the competition is free.

The competition deadline is April 5, 2017 at noon, Hawai‘i Standard Time.
