The winners for the ChiDesign CADE competition have been announced! As learning environments become more open and communally oriented, the Chicago Architecture Foundation launched the ideas competition as a means to explore possible models for future educational facilities. Participants put their creative design skills to the test by envisioning a new type of educational space called the Center for Architecture, Design and Education (CADE).

CADE designs had to incorporate: a new headquarters, visitor center and exhibition spaces for the CAF; a new headquarters for the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH); a design and allied arts high school; and flexible learning spaces for out-of-school-time youth programs.
By the end of the competition, the jury (listed at the bottom) selected five winners. A student committee comprising of Chicago Public Schools high school students also had the opportunity to review submissions selected by the jury and then determine the Student Committee winners.
