The main purpose of this competition is to give architectural students a creative vehicle for learning about the use of steel in buildings. By taking part you will have the chance to explore the complex issues surrounding the theme of how to live with rising water levels and the ever-present threat of flood.

The competition is, as usual, open to students of architecture in Europe. For both UK and overseas students the competition brief is to address the theme of H2Ouse - living on the water.

Steel has been one of the most important materials used in construction for the last 100 years or so. It has created a new architecture through its qualities of flexibility and strength. In your submission you are invited to explore the use of steel on a domestic scale – a difficult balancing act between scale, weight and utility. Designing in steel on a smaller scheme demands a light touch.

The competition gives you the chance to get your work assessed by a panel of renowned architects, and, with a total prize fund of £5,000 on offer, this is a competition not to be missed!

The awards ceremony will be held at the Royal Institute of British Architects in Central London, where a selection of shortlisted work will be exhibited. There will also be the opportunity to network with some of the industry’s top professionals.

On receipt of your entry form you will be issued with an entry reference number. This reference number should be clearly marked on all items forming your design entry and on the outside of the package in which your entry is submitted. No other form of identification or distinguishing marks should appear on any part of your submission.

Any question, which competitors wish to ask, should be addressed to Ken Oliver, Corus Student Architect awards, Corus Construction Centre, Swinden House, Rotherham, South Yorkshire, S60 3AR to arrive by 2nd February 2007. An information sheet will be drawn up in answer to all questions submitted and will be circulated to all entrants. The answers to questions shall also be published on corusconstruction.com/csaa. This will then form part of the competition conditions. Verbal questions will not be accepted.

A successful competitor must be able to satisfy the assessors that he or she is the bona fide author of the design that he or she has submitted.

Competitors should retain copies of the design submitted. The promoter cannot be held responsible for loss or damage to drawings, which may occur, either in transit or during exhibition, storage or packing.

The promoters will notify competitors of the time and place of the design exhibition.

A design will be excluded from the competition if:
- the competitor does not meet the eligibility requirements
- the entry is received after the competition dates shown
- the competitor in any way discloses his or her identity
- the competitor attempts to influence either directly or indirectly the decision of the assessors
- in the opinion of the assessors, the design does not substantially meet the requirements of the brief or the accommodation asked for

Design entries must be received by 4.30pm on Friday 18th May 2007.
