Congratulations to the 2017 BP Student Design Competition finalists! More than 1,000 Chicago students participated in the competition and 240 students completed projects that were reviewed by a jury of design professionals.
The 2017 BP Student Design Competition invited young Chicagoans to solve a design challenge. Students chose to either create a bus shelter advertisement promoting a Chicago neighborhood, or design a public library that could serve as a vibrant community space. The competition opened September 1 and closed November 30, 2017.
The competition was sponsored by BP America and organized by the Chicago Architecture Foundation, in partnership with the Chicago Architecture Biennial. The 2017 Biennial theme, “Make New History,” served as the inspiration for the competition.
