The US Pavilion for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale has launched a call for submissions to all architects interested in participating in The Architectural Imagination. The exhibition will present speculative architectural projects commissioned for specific sites in Detroit but with far-reaching application for cities around the world." Curators Cynthia Davidson and Monica Ponce de Leon will commission 12 US architects to "produce new work that demonstrates the creativity and resourcefulness of architecture to address the social and environmental issues of the 21st century." Each of the 12 projects will be exhibited in the pavilion and documented in an exhibition cataLog, a special issue of the journal Log.

The curators are looking for design excellence, innovative speculative thinking, and architectural expertise in built and/or unbuilt work. Read on to learn more. 

To be considered, architecture practices and teams of architects formed for the purpose of participating in The Architectural Imagination are invited to submit an Expression of Interest, using the provided template (required) on the exhibition website. The selection process will be conducted in one stage.

Any firm or team composed of individuals with permanent resident status must include a US citizen to be legally eligible; individual architects must be US citizens. Teams must include at least one practicing architect or architectural designer. Current architecture students are not eligible to participate. An architect may participate in only one EOI submission, whether as an individual, with a firm, or on team of individuals.

This call for submissions coincides with the launch of the exhibition website, thearchitecturalimagination.org, which will be the platform for news and updates about the exhibition. Visit the website to learn more and submit your Expression of Interest.
