The Fentress Global Challenge is an annual international competition created to engage students worldwide in the exploration of future design possibilities in public architecture. The competition theme changes to reflect current issues. For 2016, students around the globe are invited to envision "The Airport of the Future". Winning students gain international exposure and receive cash prizes and a paid internship.
Participants are encouraged to re-envision the terminal building of the future, taking into consideration current technological trends and applying them to the near future. The participant should consider every element of the passenger experience and seek to improve every dimension of the building. Things to consider are urbanization, globalization, technological innovations, flexibility, security, adaptability, and the traveler experience from "curbside to airside".
The Fentress Global Challenge is open to graduate and undergraduate students who are actively enrolled and pursuing architecture or engineering degrees, as well as recent graduates (within the last four years) with a degree in architecture or engineering.
