Location: Worldwide
Prizes: $2000 USD
Type: Open for All



As technology and the ways we learn continue to evolve, traditional classroom designs have become increasingly inadequate to meet the needs of modern learners. The Classroom of the Future competition aims to inspire designers to think outside the box and reimagine what a classroom could look like. By incorporating technology, flexible furniture, and adaptable spaces, participants will have the opportunity to explore new approaches to learning that prioritize collaboration, engagement, and innovation. This competition encourages participants to think creatively and push boundaries to create designs that address the changing needs of learners in the 21st century.


Traditional classroom designs are often outdated and inflexible, which can result in decreased engagement and reduced learning outcomes. For example, rows of desks facing the front of the classroom are no longer sufficient to support the collaborative, interactive learning that is becoming increasingly important in modern education. Additionally, many classrooms are not designed with accessibility in mind, which can create barriers for students with disabilities. The Classroom of the Future competition aims to address these issues by challenging designers to create innovative learning spaces that are adaptable, accessible, and engaging for all learners.


The Classroom of the Future competition aims to create innovative and adaptable learning spaces that prioritize technology, flexibility, collaboration, and sustainability. The design should consider the comfort, safety, and accessibility of learners and encourage engagement and interaction among students and teachers. Participants are encouraged to think creatively and explore new approaches to learning that improve learning outcomes and make learning environments more effective, efficient, and enjoyable for all learners.
