Submission Deadline: Friday, May 1, 2015 (24:00 MST).

The Fentress Global Challenge is an international design competition created to engage students worldwide in the exploration of future design possibilities in public architecture. The competition theme changes each year to reflect current issues. For 2015, students around the globe are invited to imagine: The Airport of the Future.


  • Participants are encouraged to re-envision the terminal building of the future, taking into consideration current technological trends and applying them to the near future.
  • The participant should consider every element of the passenger experience and seek to improve every dimension of the building.
