The Forge Prize 2020 AISC Vision in Steel for Architectural Excellence and Speed


The Forge Prize recognizes innovation in the use of steel and how it can be used to reduce design and construction time. Established by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), the prize invites emerging architects to submit proposals for visionary designs that embrace steel as the primary structural component to increase project speed. The Forge Prize is intended to engage emerging architects in developing imaginative solutions that bolster steel as the 21st-century building material of choice through a two-stage design challenge, culminating in a public announcement of the winner in Spring 2020.

The Forge Prize provides a wonderful platform for conceptual design in which designers are not limited to the scope or complexity of their submissions. Channel your inner Mies Van Der Rohe or Philip Johnson and leverage the inherent characteristics of designing with structural steel to create a vision that solves a logistical constraint or social issue.

The competition is open to designers based in the United States. There is no entry fee. Enter at by January 15, 2020.
