Design Challenge:
The International Union of Architects announces the launch of an international competition that will invite architecture students from around the world to create image models of examples of significant architectural creativity realized during the 20th century.

This competition is an opportunity for the architects of tomorrow to enrich the web index www.archi.fr/UIA with their own expression of an architectural realization from the last century, using today’s design tools.

Submission Requirements:
The image models to be designed for this competition need to be based on digital photographs created using Autodesk® ImageModeler® and Autodesk® Stitcher® Unlimited software.

This software will be made available by Autodesk® to the competitors for use free of charge for the duration of the competition.
All phases of the competition will be conducted on-line.

Students are free to choose the structure they wish to represent, from a major landmark to an unknown building, with the condition that it was built between 1901 and 2000.

Entries can be architectural descriptions based on panoramic images and/or 3D models of the structure in its current state.
