The AIA Committee on Design (COD) invites architects, students, and allied design professionals to submit sketches to the international 2009 COD Ideas Competition. In this unique sketch competition, submitters are asked to explore the legacy of modernist design, through a concept design problem.


CHALLENGE Design a new house to replace the recently demolished Raymond House (architect: Eleanor Raymond, FAIA). Regarded at the time of its con-struction as the first true Modern house in New England, and one of the earliest in the United States, the Raymond House was a signature work of one of the most prominent American women architects of the 20th century. Submissions to this competition must follow the same program as the original house, interpret the ideals of Modernism, and follow guidelines for sustainable design.


SUBMISSIONS Entries will be digital, consisting of drawings and renderings presented on two PowerPoint slides.
