In response to this year’s Chicago Architecture Biennial prompting Make New History, the Chicago Architectural Club is pleased to announce the 2017 Burnham Prize Competition: Under the Dome.
New History is made not from a position of sentimentality toward style, but rather it must be critical of our past and used to inform architecture that is responsive to both its context and future inhabitants. This year’s Burnham Prize uses the historical and typological construct of the dome and calls for its critical re-imagination in the context of Make New History.
This is an international design ideas competition calling for speculative proposals and architectural interventions that re-charge the significance and relevance of the dome. On the centennial birthdate of St. Stephen’s Church, the CAC is seeking proposals for “Under the Dome.” Would new strategies of programming or tectonic experimentation provide a new future for the dome? How can the collision of history and new use create the radical emergence of the unimaginable?
