The 48 HRS Competition is a biennial program produced by the AIA Atlanta Young Architects Forum. A committee decides on a theme for each competition and once the project brief is announced, participants have 48 hours to design and submit their responses.

Through the competition, AIA Atlanta aims to spotlight the talents of emerging designers and promote the value of good design. The 48 HRS Competition requires quick responses and fast, innovative thinking.
