Chicago Architectural Club: Chicago Prize

The Chicago Architectural Club is pleased to announce the 2010 Chicago Prize Competition: MINE THE GAP, a single-stage international design ideas competition dedicated to examining one of the most visible scars left after the collapse of the real estate market in Chicago: the massive hole along the Lake Michigan shore that was to have been—and may yet be—the foundation for a singular 150-story condominium tower designed by an internationally-renowned Spanish architect, a tower which was to have become a new icon for the city and region.

What to do with the gap? Whether or not the project is resuscitated, what else can we do with this strategic and highly-charged site? Once the motor of real-estate speculation has stalled, what can we use to propel ourselves, and the discipline, forward?

Competitors may submit material online anytime between March 22, 2010 and May 3, 2010. Registration is open, and may be completed anytime before the deadline.

Entry Fee: Register Now
CAC Members $30 (2010 dues must be paid before registering)

First Prize: $3,500
Second Prize: $1,500
Third Prize: $750

The results of this competition will be announced in May 2010, at a public event to be held in Chicago. All entries will be published in the forthcoming issue of the CAC Journal, alongside the results of the 2008 Burnham Prize Competition, Union Station 2020.
