Nine student/architect teams will assemble at a private residence in Portola Valley, Calif., on Friday, Oct. 26, for dinner to launch a weekend of intense design and serious competition. The assignment is to design an artist's cottage to be built on Sonia Dhillon-Marty's property, Champ de Portola, by 2014.
Nine architects from four countries will be paired with the students. Teams will be given site plans, a project description and a philosophical statement, but little else. — news.stanford.edu
