The  AIA/AAH PDC Student Challenge 2024 is an exciting annual event designed to stimulate critical inquiry, creative ideas and multi-disciplinary interaction between students and design professionals. It will highlight the brilliance and innovation of our future health care architects, engineers, construction managers and nurses. Students from five different universities and disciplines will bring their creativity and ideas to this fun and evocative design charrette. During this time, students will present work completed during the three-day-long AIA/AAH PDC Student Challenge 2024 for critique by a multi-disciplinary jury and the winning team will be announced.
