The Chicago Architectural Club (CAC) announces the 2014 Chicago Prize Competition on The Barack Obama Presidential Library. In partnership with the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) a call for entries for the Chicago Prize Competition is taking place as of November 15th, 2015 with the announcement of the winning entries on February 3rd, 2015.
The recent media coverage surrounding the announced Barack Obama Presidential Library, drawing bids from contenders New York, Honolulu, and Chicago, once again initiates the desire for speculations and projections. As the fourteenth of its kind, this civic institution will not only function to house a collection of artifacts and documents relating to the president’s life but will also provide an educational infrastructure and framework for outreach and community programs.
This year’s Chicago Prize is calling for speculative proposals for the Barack Obama Presidential Library to initiate a debate in order to rethink and redefine this particular building typology. Entry information, including a complete set of rules, can be found at www.chicagoarchitecturalclub.org. Entries are due by noon, January 10, 2015.
A jury of notable professionals, academics, and public officials will review and determine competition winners. The jurors will be listed on the Competition Website (www.chicagoarchitecturalclub.org and CAC on Facebook).
Winner of the 2014 Chicago Prize will be announced and exhibited at an opening event at the Chicago Architectural Foundation, on February 03, 2015. Projects will remain on exhibition.
