2022 Global Challenge calls for architectural project submissions

The 2022 edition of Architecture-in-Development’s (A--D) annual Global Challenge (#GC2022) is welcoming submissions from self-build communities worldwide from 26 October. 

The deadline for submissions is 30 November 2022.

Running from October to June each year, the Global Challenge identifies and showcases the most impactful inclusive and sustainable architectural projects worldwide, and helps accelerate their development

It does this by connecting self-build communities with A--D's global network of 60,000+ (largely female) architects and building professionals, and its blue chip partners and sponsors.

Submissions are welcomed from early-phase architectural projects with the radical potential to improve the lives of rural and urban communities. As the submission guidelines indicate, eligible submissions include, but are not limited to: collective spaces for community learning, living; working spaces such as schools, libraries; meeting places, community centres and more.

All eligible submissions will benefit from: 

- Exposure: Visibility and credibility among project supporters and new potential partners.

- Network & partnerships: Access to our global network of ambassadors and representatives who may offer their support. 

- Funding: The opportunity to reach out to our network of local ambassadors and representatives who may help fundraise.

"Our purpose at A--D is to bring about paradigm shift in the way we think about and practice architecture in society — moving from what a client wants to what humanity needs. Our annual Global Challenge is one way we catalyse that shift," said Rob Breed, Cofounder, Architecture-in-Development.

"The A--D Global Challenge is not just another design competition. It highlights the efforts of self-build communities world-wide. The quality of 2021 entries impressed our jurors and perfectly illustrated the radical potential of the architectural practice that we call Do-It-Together. We’re looking forward to seeing what 2022 brings!," said ChangFang Luo, Cofounder, Architecture-in-Development.
