A Spotlight on Emerging Talent

The 48 HRS Competition is a biennial program produced by the Young Architects Forum of AIA Atlanta. The competitions launches with the reveal of the competition’s theme. Then, participants have 48 hours to design and submit their projects.

The competition requires quick responses and fast, innovative thinking. In doing this, we spotlight the talents of emerging designers while promoting the value of good design. The latest contest took place August 26-28, and is tentatively scheduled for 2018.
