There's still about a month left to register and submit to the 2017 Burnham Prize Competition: Under the Dome. In response to the upcoming Chicago Architecture Biennial's “Make New History” theme, the 2017 Burnham Prize is inviting architects worldwide to send their most clever speculative design ideas that re-imagine the decaying dome of the nearby abandoned St. Stephen's Church, which will celebrate its centennial anniversary this year. The competition asks: How can the dome be re-imagined to fit in today's world?
