About HSDC

Welcome to the High School Design Competition (HSDC) by AIA Atlanta. For the last 16 years, the competition has created opportunities for Georgia high school students to immerse in fundamental architecture concepts and learn skills that will be useful in college and beyond.

HSDC focuses on a design prompt to which students will create a solution using their creativity and architectural knowledge. The competition features two levels, beginner and advanced, to accommodate students with different experience levels. Winners are announced during a special ceremony in April, with those in the more challenging advanced competition receiving scholarships.
