The 2007 AMD Open Architecture Challenge invited the global community to help address this digital divide.


For the developed world, imagining a world without the Internet is nearly impossible. Despite the Internet’s global significance, less than 20 percent of the world’s 6 billion people currently have access to the educational, social and economic opportunities it can create.The competition challenged design professionals and others to develop not one but many solutions for building sustainable, multi-purpose, low-cost technology facilities for those who need them most.


The 2007 AMD Open Architecture Challenge focused on the issue of digital inclusion and tasked design teams to address the issues of facility design that prevent technology labs from succeeding. Three community partners were selected, one in each of three regions. Each site posed a unique set of design constraints and opportunities. While the needs of each client were unique, the hurdles they face in embracing technology to offer access to education, health care and the global marketplace are shared by millions of people in communities all over the world.
