The Two Worlds Community Foundation was founded by Vernon D. Swaback to advance scientific, social, and economic knowledge required for the sustainable design and development of humanity’s built environments. An important part of the Foundation’s mission is to educate, nurture, cultivate and challenge young great minds to design concepts for our future cities and urban environments. To achieve these goals, the Foundation is inviting design students across the nation to collaborate and participate in the first Desert Design Competition, The Arizona Challenge.
