Existing Conditions Launches "Innovation Challenge 2024"

Existing Conditions Launches




Boston, MA, February 26th, 2024, – Existing Conditions is proud to present its second “Innovation Challenge” offering up to $3,000 in prizes, including internship and career opportunities, and a "real-world" site visit to a high-profile site with the Existing Conditions team.

This competition is free to enter and is open to students studying architecture design, planning, and related disciplines. Register Here

This year, the Existing Conditions Innovation Challenge tasks students with crafting a comprehensive architectural illustration that encapsulates their in-depth analysis and understanding of a real-world project, based on the 3D point cloud and Revit model we supply. Participants must also provide a brief explanation, no longer than 150 words, that describes the rationale behind their analysis and the story their visual representation tells. Furthermore, students are to create a video narrative, lasting between three and five minutes, to accompany their architectural illustration.

Students in architecture, design, planning, and related fields should take advantage of this unique opportunity to highlight their analytical prowess and innovative thinking. We look forward to seeing the unique visions and interpretations of our real-world project brought to life.

"There definitely was a before and an after with the Existing Conditions Innovation Challenge. More than producing a new and exciting project for my portfolio, winning the challenge opened up a lot of doors for me and was an absolute impulse for my career as a future architect" - Nicolas Mateus, winner of the Existing Conditions Innovation Challenge 2023.



The “Existing Conditions Innovation Challenge” jury will be composed of well-known architects and designers, including:

“We are excited to announce the 2024 Existing Conditions Innovation Challenge, a unique opportunity that beckons the next wave of architects, designers, and digital documentation experts to showcase their analytical prowess, visual creativity, and innovative thinking on a global platform. For years, Existing Conditions has set the industry standard by equipping professionals with precise, actionable data and enabling informed decision-making.

It's an invitation to rethink the boundaries of architectural representation and urban design thinking through the lens of digital innovation and to project their unique visions into tangible, impactful narratives.” - Jared Curtis, President of Existing Conditions.
