…IBS live design competition deadline.
In 2013, the NAHB Design Committee has partnered with the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD) and Operation Finally Home to put on a live design competition at the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas. Four teams will be chosen and the deadline to submit an application for your team is December 28, 2012.
The competition will focus on designing a home for one of America’s wounded veterans returning from war. Working with set parameters, such as lot size, square footage, energy efficiency, accessibility and style, design teams will have nine hours to complete their designs. IBS attendees will get to watch as the design process unfolds in front of their eyes on the exhibit floor as well as observe the design teams present their work to a panel of judges.
Apply ($150 per team of three designers)
