Can You Turn Simple Cargo Containers into
an Efficient Mobile Visitor Center?

GRAPHISOFT North America, makers of ARCHICAD, noted architectural firm, Kitchen & Associates and AIA West Jersey, a section of AIA-NJ invite you to answer that question.
This year Philadelphia hosts the AIA National Convention, continuing its long tradition of serving as a colorful backdrop to dozens of concerts, conventions, sporting events and festivals annually. With so many wonderful venues in one historic place – the city lacks a way to welcome those various event attendees in a cohesive and effective manner.
Your challenge? Position Philadelphia’s rich history in front of the millions of tourists who visit it annually by using ARCHICAD to design a temporary, mobile visitor center from shipping containers. You can use as many containers as you want. Make them portable, self-contained and interactive. Give the containers a way to respond to the various sites in which it could be situated.

A total of $3,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place winners.
