Modern Atlanta (MA) is pleased to announce the first annual Modern Atlanta Prize 2011 competition. The prize intends to highlight talented designers and their projects each year under a new and interesting theme.
This year the prize calls for students and young architects to submit projects that exemplify the rapid development and innovation that is being witnessed in the architecture of Korea. The competition aims to highlight projects of all scales, either built or conceptual, that showcase exceptional Korean design talent as well as projects that thoughtfully deal with the unique conditions whether geographical, social, political or cultural, pertaining to Korea.
All proposals will be reviewed by an international jury panel and winners will be announced in May. The jury includes Jeeyong An and Sang Hwa Lee of MANIFESTO, Kai-Uwe Bergmann of BIG, Sebastien Boissard of Studio Boissard, Matteo Caimi of C&A Architecture, and Minsuk Cho of Mass Studies.
Prize winning entries and honorable mentions will be exhibited at the Korean Pavilion during the Design is Human Week 2011 event to be held from June 6th-12th in Atlanta, Georgia. Learn more about MA and the annual Design is Human Week event here.
