Teachers and students know what makes a classroom work. We''re inviting you to design the classroom of the future together.

According to the World Bank, educating all children worldwide will require the construction of 10 million new classrooms in more than 100 countries by 2015. At the same time, millions of existing classrooms are in serious need of repair and refurbishment.

We are inviting you, teachers, students, architects and designers, to work together to design the classroom of the future for a school of your choosing. Your design should address the unique challenges your school faces in trying to provide smart, safe and sustainable learning spaces. Students and teachers, here''s your chance to tell the world what you need to make your classroom more effective. Architects and designers, you''ll work one-on-one with students to translate those needs into better classroom design.

The Open Architecture Challenge: Classroom is an open, international competition. Direct employees and family members of employees of Architecture for Humanity and Orient Global are precluded from participating in the competition, but there are no other restrictions on who can enter.
