The Fall 2021 bp Student Ideas Competition at the Chicago Architecture Biennial invites young people to respond to one of the following prompts:
Design a collective space for exchanges / exchanging Exchanges could be large or small markets in one location, or a number of spaces spread out across a larger area. The space can be for the exchange of goods, services, knowledge, or something else. Individual submissions only
Design a collective space for plants / planting The presence of plants—or a lack thereof—impacts us in significant ways. By planting, we can learn and labor together, forming connections between each other and our production. Individual submissions only
Design a collective space for commons / commoning Commons are spaces or resources that are shared by groups of people. Commons can be natural (land, water, air) or cultural (languages, libraries, history). Individual and team submissions accepted
The competition welcomes submissions that explore ideas about architecture and design presented through any medium or discipline including the humanities, visual and performing arts, writing, and STEM fields. Strong entries will be unique, imaginative, thoughtfully executed, and community specific.
