Brush up on those storytelling skills, the Fairy Tales Architecture Competition is back for 2016! After 2015 was a record-breaking success with over 1,200 participants in 65 countries, who knows what kinds of narratives the 2016 competition will bring.
First launched in 2014 by Blank Space, the competition invites the creatively inclined — architects, designers, writers, artists, engineers, illustrators, students, and the like — to pen their own architectural fairy tale. Participants get to use fictional storytelling as a means to explore and discuss real-world topics.
