AISC Announces Jury for the 2022 Forge Prize

Chicago – The American Institute of Steel Construction revealed the jury for the 2022 Forge Prize.

The Forge Prize recognizes emerging architects for designs that embrace steel as a primary structural component and capitalize on steel’s ability to increase a project’s speed.

AISC will be join by Evelyn Lee, FAIA, senior experience designer at Slack Technologies, founder of the Practice of Architecture and co-host of the Practice Disrupted podcast; Miles Nelligan, associate principal at Diller Scofidio + Renfro; and Alex Bachrach, publisher of Architectural Record.

The first stage of the competition is open through October 31. U.S.-based emerging designers, those who are either still obtaining licensure or have been licensed for less than 10 years, are welcome to submit conceptual designs.

The jury will select three finalists, who will each win a cash prize and be paired with a steel fabricator for the second phase of the competition, in which they further develop their concept before presenting to the jury, live on YouTube. The winning architect(s) will then  share their vision at the Architecture in Steel Conference next March, and take home the $10,000 grand prize.
