Weekend Charrette #1 - Plywood

Show off your design skills with only 72 hours to create something special.

September 6 - 8

At midnight on September 6th, we will release the design prompt for our first Weekend Charrette.

Until then, you only get one hint: plywood...

$250 Grand Prize + $50 to 2 Finalists

How does this work?

Charrette comes from the French en charrette, with its heritage found in École des Beaux-Arts students frantically working on their drawings even as they were being taken away on a cart.

The GoArchitect Weekend Charrette celebrates this small part of architecture culture with a modern twist. On September 6, we will release the design prompt for a 72-hour design challenge. 

Once the charrette begins, you will have until Sunday, September 8th at 11:59 PM (PST) to complete and submit your design on Instagram using a unique hashtag that will be given to you after the charrette begins.

Every eligible design will be reviewed by GoArchitect's jury. One project will receive the $250 grand prize and 2 projects will win $50.

Weekend Charrette brings designers together to collaborate, compete, and celebrate their love of architecture and design.
