Vectorworks, Inc. along with the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) has announced the winners of the 2021 Parklet Design Competition. As the first partnership competition with AIAS, members were invited to share their designs and renderings to provide a creative solution to the parklet challenge.

The Competition

For the competition, students had to design a parklet — a sidewalk extension that provides more space and amenities for people using the street. In addition to their submissions, contestants had to follow and tag the AIAS National Office and Vectorworks on Instagram for consideration.

“It was great to see such a variety of designs showcasing how to repurpose public space in unique ways, I’m always impressed by the creativity and innovative thinking of our members,” said AIAS President Erin Conti.

The Winners

Here are the winners of the 2021 Parklet Design Competition:

“This was our first time partnering with AIAS for a competition, and it was a great opportunity to see the unique, creative submissions,” said Vectorworks Marketing Programs Director Alice Lowy. “We always enjoy giving students the chance to show off their design skills so they can be recognized for their talent.”

Students who wish to showcase their design skills on an international scale are encouraged to submit either new or old projects to the Vectorworks Design Scholarship for a chance to win up to $10,000 USD. Submissions are due March 31.
