The 2030 Challenge

The Michael G. Meyers Design & Scholarship Competition is an annual event sponsored by Architecture Center Houston Foundation, AIA Houston, and local architectural firms and affiliates. This is an ideas competition with an emphasis on creative problem solving and graphic presentation.

In previous years students have been asked to design a multipurpose building for Houston’s Third Ward, a soccer stadium, a museum, a recycling center, and many other challenging projects. The MGMC Committee is hard at work challenging the students to design a new education center that focuses on educating the public about sustainable efforts and practices. The new education center will be located at the crux of Buffalo Bayou and the Second Ward. The Competition Committee will host a series of events to help the students learn basic architectural drawing skills and understand the competition requirements. The winners will be announced in May and an awards ceremony will be held.

All Houston area high school students are eligible to participate regardless of class affiliation or age. Entrants are requested to enter only once per year as a member of a team or as an individual. Teachers and Counselors are encouraged to promote this scholarship competition.
