Registration for the 2019 BP Student Ideas Competition is now open.
The 2019 BP Student Ideas competition asks young people to share ideas about how design can play a role in creating shared spaces and improving communities. The competition welcomes submissions that explore ideas about architecture and the built environment from a wide range of disciplines including design but also the humanities, visual and performing arts, and STEM fields.
A comprehensive competition manual including a detailed prompt, example projects, and curriculum resources are available for download at chicagoarchitecturebiennial.org/competition.
Winning entries from the 2017 BP Student Design Competition are listed below. 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 2017 Biennial theme, “Make New History,” served as the inspiration for the competition.
