Generation NEXT

Call for Submissions

Generation NEXT is an annual celebration of the broad range of independent design work produced by recent alumni of the USC School of Architecture. A curated selection of alumni working in the fields of architecture, urban design, fabrication and more present their work in a casual, fast-paced event to showcase the impact of independent design thinking.

The USC School of Architecture is proud to present the fifth annual Generation NEXT on Wednesday, March 24, 2021, a virtual evening in celebration of the broad range of independent design work produced by its young alumni. Generation NEXT will be a casual fast-paced evening of virtual presentations by a curated selection of USC alumni who have gone on to individual success in the world of design and the built environment. 10 alumni who graduated in the year 2000 or later will each present 20 slides for 20 seconds each to showcase the impact of independent design thinking.


All alumni from any of the undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. programs at the USC School of Architecture who have graduated on or after the year 2000 and have gone on to some form of independent design practice are encouraged to apply. The selection process will be juried by a panel of distinguished USC Architecture alumni and faculty.
