A few months ago, the Graduate School of Architecture at Columbia University organized an open international design ideas competition. The competition, Imagining Recovery, which coincided with Obama’s first 100 days of presidency, asked participants to imagine what recovery could look like and supplement the maps, charts and graphs of Recovery.gov with images of lived experiences, as announced earlier on AD.
Submissions were received from 25 different countries and on May 13, the distinguished jury selected ten projects for recognition and of these, only three to be the prize winners.

The competition jury selected Jill Stoner & Marie Sorensen, Benjamin Loeffler & Kathryn Spurr, and David Ruperti & Andrew Miller as the Imagining Recovery prize winners. The remaining jury selection included Leor Lovinger, Sharif Khalje, Gwendolyn MacFarland, David de Cespedes, Will Robinette, Zachary Colbert & Daniel Kidd, and Matthew Lutz & Nicole Koltick.
Following the competition, a collective publication and video exhibition will be distributed in New York, Paris, Beijing and Amman, as well as online. Winners will be published in Volume Magazine and receive a cash prize.
Images of the full jury selection will be posted soon on Imagining Recovery.
