Open Call for ‘In Studio: Made Submissions’

The AIAS and American Galvanizers Association (AGA) are looking for members to share their sketches/renderings/models to showcase the use of galvanized steel in a unique way! This competition is open to all years and skill sets – show us what you’ve got!

This competition asks students to research the design and fabrication properties of hot-dip galvanizing and then sketch/model a sculpture, building façade, parking garage, outdoor recreation/entertainment structure, etc. that could be physically built out of hot-dip galvanized steel.

Submissions will be judged on constructability, design, and ingenuity.
