With yet another week under ever-evolving pandemic precautions wrapping up, it's time again to take a look at some of the most recent architecture and design challenges added to Bustler's competition database.
Since pointing out a first wave of pandemic-related briefs in April, we have received more submissions for design competitions and grant opportunities centered around topics of social distancing, working from home, and COVID-19 in general.
Here are, ordered by registration and submission due date, a few of these recent listings.

Submission Deadline: Monday, Jun 1, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented the world with unprecedented challenges and is impacting our daily lives
by restricting our personal movements radically.

The Atelier Kopfhoch competition seeks for utopian residential design concepts in a world that is facing unprecedented challenges.
