Featured Competition: Next Stop
The Chicago Architectural Club and Chicago Architecture Foundation--in partnership with the Chicago Department of Transportation, the Chicago Transit Authority, and the Chicago Bus Rapid Transit Steering Committee--are pleased to announce the 2013 Burnham Prize Competition: NEXT STOP: Designing Chicago BRT Stations. This is a single-stage international design ideas competition intended to catalyze iconic, sustainable, and functional design for representative corridors in Chicago’s planned Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system.
NEXT STOP seeks to integrate innovative and compelling transportation design into Chicago’s urban fabric. Importantly, NEXT STOP seeks proposals that realize BRT as a system of solutions: each design team must submit designs for three different prototype sites and demonstrate how BRT station design can be adapted to each context.
Projects are due 5/13 and over $5,000 will be awarded. Learn more here: http://chicagoarchitecturalclub.org/Competition-2013-Burnham-Prize
