Sunshine State Modular Classroom Design Competition

The Florida Foundation for Architecture is embarking on a program to address the issue of school growth through the creation of a series of modular "Florida Classrooms."

The Foundation is sponsoring a design competition for AIA Florida Emerging Professionals. Emerging professionals are defined as architecture students in the Florida University system, AIA Associate members, and architects licensed less than 10 years.

The Competition is aimed at fostering research associated with the design of modular classroom units that can serve K through 12 student populations throughout the state of Florida. Solutions are being sought to address the design parameters of affordability, sustainability and structural durability within the Florida context. The design shall also address the “rapid deployment” element by providing a “modular” design solution which can be pre-manufactured and delivered to a school site.
