Finalists of Storefront’s Competition of Competitions
Posted: Saturday, February 08, 2014 |

Competition briefs for urban development can overlook the most pressing and relevant needs of local communities, and architects are usually limited to satisfying the brief's requirements in their proposals.

As a response, Storefront set up the Competition of Competitions, where interdisciplinary teams got to ask the questions in creating their own competition briefs.

Eighteen finalists were chosen out of 100 submissions. The jury will then select 3 winners, 7 honorable mentions, and a Storefront Special Prize. The Special Prize will get to run their submitted competition as part of the 2014 Storefront for Art and Architecture program calendar.
