2017 BURNHAM PRIZE COMPETITION:UNDER THE DOME
August 18, 2017
In response to this year’s Chicago Architecture Biennial prompting Make New History, the Chicago Architectural Club is pleased to announce the 2017 Burnham Prize Competition: Under the Dome. In partnership with the Chicago Architecture Biennial, a call for entries for the Burnham Prize is taking place with submissions due August 18th.
This year the Chicago Cultural Center will perform as the main venue for the second edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial. The Center—formerly a Public Library– was designed by Shepley Rutan and Coolidge in 1897. Inside the building, the acclaimed Tiffany Dome was recently restored and brings in millions of visitors a year to not only admire the beautiful structure, but also participate in the many programs held under the dome.
A jury of notable professionals, academics, and public officials will review and determine competition winners. The jurors will be listed on the Competition Website (www.chicagoarchitecturalclub.org).
The winner(s) of the 2017 Burnham Prize will be announced and exhibited at an opening event in September. Further details will be listed on the Competition Website.
