For the last 5 years, the Fairy Tales competition has captured the imagination of designers and architects around the world. Last year's record breaking competition drew entries from over 60 countries, making the competition once again the largest annual architecture competition in the world. For the sixth year of the competition, Blank Space is proud to partner with ArchDaily, Archinect, Bustler, and the AIAS.
“My personal little theory is that we’re all constantly reworking our childhoods. For me, creativity has a lot to do with recovering lost innocence,” says jury member Jürgen Mayer, “As a society, we’re definitely looking at the future again, but always in terms of responsibilities, cautions, and potential catastrophes. I refer back to this moment in the past where there was this excitement, energy, and risk of discovery.”
To celebrate the launch of the 6th year of the Fairy Tales competition- all Fairy Tales publications, including Fairy Tales Volume 1, Fairy Tales Volume 2, and Fairy Tales Volume 3 will be on sale for a limited time- available at the Blank Space website.
“The best entries we have received over the years are not just visually stunning and original in their execution, but they inspire us by striking universal chords,” says Blank Space founder Francesca Giuliani. “From deeply personal studies in how we relate to our surroundings, to tales of large-scale social dystopias, the entrants to Fairy Tales competition have the power to ignite meaningful and needed conversations in the wider architecture community.”
Fairy Tales is open to all, and invites architects, designers, writers, artists, engineers, illustrators, students and creatives to submit their own unique architectural fairy tales. A successful entry will craft a text narrative, along with 5 images, in the most spectacular way possible.
Participants can register for a $45 Early Bird Discount until September 28th. Following that, Regular Registration ($60) will be open until December 6th, and Late Registration ($75) until the Submission Deadline on January 4th, 2018.

ABOUT BLANK SPACE
Blank Space is an online platform for architecture, founded in 2013 by Matthew Hoffman and Francesca Giuliani. Matthew is an architect who believes architecture can be more interesting, more fun and more social. Francesca is a journalist who believes that communication is omnipresent, and that good communication helps great ideas change the world.
Through competitions, publications, and projects, we uncover the true power of architecture by creating new opportunities for design to engage the public. We like to think of Blank Space as an office for thought provocation, challenging architecture to rethink its role in society by speaking about things everybody can relate to, in a language understandable to all.
