The 2019 BP Student Ideas Competition at the Chicago Architecture Biennial invites young people to respond to the following prompt:
Design a safe community space where young people can share ideas and take action on a local or global issue. Your space can be a physical place, an object, or an event.
The competition is sponsored by BP America and organized by the Chicago Architecture Biennial, in partnership with the Chicago Architecture Center. The competition will welcome 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. Strong entries will be community specific, imaginative, and exhibit a creative use of materials.
