Type: Open competition in two stages for architects and architecture students from USA and Canada.
PER/FORM is the world’s first live Performance Based Design competition.
The competition offers contestants an opportunity to showcase their skills in Performance Based Design powered by real-time analysis – a new way of designing buildings that is reshaping the architecture industry. Performance Based Design allows for rapid assessment of the relative benefits of design options, helping architects deliver higher performing buildings faster and easier than ever before. The goal of this competition is creating designs that are both aesthetically pleasing and high performing. The focus of the live event is speed – fast decision making as it is required at the beginning of every design process.
The competition runs in two-phases during Spring 2014 — an online round during the month of April and a live event at Pratt’s Manhattan Campus on May 17th.
