Fentress Global Challenge 2024 Invites Students to Pioneer the Future of Airport Design

Denver, CO, USA, Dec. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fentress Architects, a global design firm renowned for innovative, award-winning public architecture, proudly announces the commencement of the 2024 Fentress Global Challenge (FGC). Celebrating its milestone 10th year, this prestigious international student design competition beckons participants to envision groundbreaking concepts for the airport of the future.

"Fentress Global Challenge provides a unique platform for emerging designers to bring expansive ideas and inventive perspectives," remarked FGC Founder Curtis Fentress, FAIA, RIBA. "We eagerly anticipate witnessing the boundaries of architectural design being pushed this year as exceptional students drive innovation in airport design."

This year's competition brief challenges students to reimagine the terminal building in the year 2100, placing the new terminal at either an existing airport of their choice or in a location where an airport does not yet exist. The latter option encourages participants to envision a city where an airport serves as a catalyst for economic and social development. Designs must consider various elements, including local context, evolving technologies, sustainability, resiliency, security, wellbeing, mobility, urbanization, globalization, project feasibility, and the overall passenger experience.

The First Place Winner will be awarded $10,000 USD. Four additional winners will receive smaller cash prizes.

FGC is open to graduate and undergraduate students currently pursuing architecture or engineering degrees in an accredited university program, as well as recent graduates (within the last four years) with a degree in architecture or engineering.
