This edition of Bustler's curated picks of architecture and design challenges highlights four briefs calling for modern preservation initiatives, future-thinking, innovative ideas and designs that use everyday objects to create something new, projects made primarily of clay brick products, and student-led furniture designs that blend vintage and modern aesthetics.
The complete list of newly listed competitions can be found here.

Creative Discovery Challenge
Registration/Submission Deadline: Monday, October 2, 2023
"We are excited to announce the opening of a new award hosted by NISSAN and Loftwork. The Creative Discovery Challenge is looking to award future-thinking, innovative ideas and designs that have the potential to improve people’s lives. Submissions will be accepted between July 19, 2023, and October 2, 2023, and are asked to follow the theme of 'bricolage,' where people use everyday objects to create something new. Using bricolage, this award wants applicants to leverage their own unique perspective to propose a new way to enhance everyday life."

FORM Student Innovation Competition
Registration/Submission Deadline: Friday, March 8, 2024
"This year, Formica reflects on 110 years of Formica with a challenge that asks students to submit a color rendering and project statement of a furniture design that interprets 'newstalgia' — a trending aesthetic that blends retro and vintage design with a fresh, modern take. Through their design, students are asked to use their creativity when defining what 'newstalgia' means to them, bridging classic with new."
