Chicago Architecture Foundation Contest Gives Designers a Showcase During the Biennial

Want to have your work shown during the first Chicago Architecture Biennial? The Chicago Architecture Foundation's first ideas competition, announced yesterday, provides an unofficial opportunity for aspiring designers to have their work displayed in Chicago during the inaugural event. The non-profit foundation, known for its educational and outreach initiatives including an annual open house and architectural boat tours of the Chicago River, is seeking design proposals for a potential new headquarters, a multi-use facility they're calling the Center for Architecture, Design and Education (CADE). Finalists will see their work displayed in an exhibit at the group's current space inside the famous Santa Fe building on Michigan Avenue starting October 1st, concurrent with the biennial. The winner, to be chosen by a jury including Stanley Tigerman (Tigerman McCurry Architects), David Adjaye (Adjaye Associates), Monica Ponce De Leon (MPdL Studio), Billie Tsien (Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects) and Ned Cramer (Editor-in-Chief of Architect magazine) will receive a $10,000 prize.
