The Young Architects Studio Competition
AIA Pittsburgh is excited to announce the Young Architects Studio Competition (YASC), as a part of Design Pittsburgh 2013. Now in its fourth year, the YASC was created for young architects – architecture graduates who have been out of school for no more than 10 years. NEW this year, we are expanding this competition to include architecture undergraduates. Entrants may or may not be licensed, and may or may not be members of the AIA or AIAS. The goal of this competition is to engage our young and emerging professionals and students, by challenging them to find innovative ways to approach a regional design problem.

The Great Allegheny Passage Exhibit – Call for Photographs
The Great Allegheny Passage, the 2013 Young Architects Studio Competition (YASC), covers a 150-mile, multi-use trail connecting Pittsburgh to Cumberland, MD. through the Allegheny Mountains, utilizing abandoned railroad corridors and connects to the C&O Canal towpath to create a non-motorized trail network 334.5-miles in length to Washington, D.C.
As part of the exhibition displaying YASC competition entries, AIA Pittsburgh will exhibit selected photographs taken of the GAP trail. This exhibit is a part of the month-long celebration of Design Pittsburgh, the annual design award program that recognizes and promotes the importance of good design and value of architectural services.
The exhibit will be open to the public on the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust Gallery Crawl and PechaKucha Night 20×20 Volume 16.
Anyone is welcome and encouraged to submit their photographs. There is no fee to submit, but entries do need to be received by September 9th. To learn more, click here.
