Today over 3 billion people live in urban areas. By 2050 that will double.

How will the architecture, engineering, construction (AEC) industry meet the demand for affordable and sustainable buildings in this rapidly urbanizing world? At Flux, we believe technology is the answer.

That’s why this year, Flux is calling all students designing in Grasshopper, Dynamo, and Excel to enter our student design competition. Show us what role you think technology solutions can play in accelerating the building design process and increasing the innovation capacity of design teams.



All currently enrolled students worldwide studying subjects related to the built environment are eligible to participate in this competition.



All winning entries will be featured on the Flux webpage. Receipt of an award in one category does not exclude an individual or team from the receipt of awards in any other category. Award of monetary prizes are subject to US and domestic laws and restrictions.
