Description: Columbia University’s Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture together with the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture is issuing a competitive call for course proposals on the theme of “Architecture, Climate Change, and Society.” Successful proposals will include methods and themes that innovate within their institutional setting—asking hard questions of students that are equal in weight to the hard questions being asked of society in the midst of a global pandemic as it continues to grapple with the intertwined causes and effects of climate change. See website for full details.
Award: Up to five proposals will be selected by the jury for eight thousand dollars in cash prizes and two thousand dollars in support to present the winning course proposals at the ACSA110 Annual Meeting. To receive the cash prize and support, winners must demonstrate viability for the course at their host institution within two years of the prize’s distribution via a letter from their program’s head administrator. Developed syllabi of winning proposals will be published on both the ACSA and Buell Center websites.
Eligibility: Open to faculty at all ACSA member schools. Faculty from Columbia University are not eligible. Courses that have been previously recognized for the Course Development Prize will not be considered. Courses submitted but not selected are encouraged to resubmit; however please make note of significant changes to the course proposal.
Deadline: Oct. 20, 2021
