An interactive experience for posing questions, solving problems and fostering collaboration.

For Teens

There’s finally a place for you to show off your design skills while getting feedback from professionals around the world. DiscoverDesign.org poses real-world design problems for you to solve. Walk through the design process using our five-step guide as you create something to amaze other makers. Work on projects through a school or program, or tackle the problems all on your own, knowing there’s a whole network of designers there to support you.

For Educators

DiscoverDesign.org guides your students to design their own solutions to real-world problems with the support of you and volunteer architecture and design mentors. At each step of the design process, your students post original photos, digital models, animations, architectural drawings, videos and design narratives. The website serves as a safe and creative architectural town square where students can be inspired, pose questions and get feedback on their work.
