FORM Student Innovation Competition

The FORM Student Innovation Competition is a modern take on the original “FORM: Contemporary Architects at Play” challenge, held in 2008, where ten world-renowned architects, including Zaha Hadid, Michael Graves, Bernard Tschumi and Massimo Vignelli, constructed new works of art from Formica® Brand products. This year, students were invited to take on the same challenge by creating and submitting a color rendering of something to “sit upon, lay upon, lean upon or play upon.”  The grand-prize winner, selected by a panel of esteemed judges, will have their design fabricated and showcased at an unveiling event at the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center starting March 23.
