Calling all architects and students, the Chicago Architectural Club (CAC) wants to see your ideas for The Barack Obama Presidential Library. The recent media coverage surrounding the announced library, drawing bids from New York, Honolulu, and Chicago, once again initiates the desire for speculations and projections. As the fourteenth of its kind, this civic institution will not only function to house a collection of artifacts and documents relating to the president’s life but will also provide an educational infrastructure and framework for outreach and community programs. Thus, in partnership with the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF), this year’s Chicago Prize Competition is calling for speculative proposals for the Barack Obama Presidential Library to initiate a debate in order to rethink and redefine this particular building typology.

A jury of notable professionals, academics, and public officials will review and determine competition winners. The winning proposal will be announced and exhibited at an opening event at the Chicago Architectural Foundation on February 3, 2015. Projects will remain on exhibition.

Entries are due by noon, January 10, 2015. You can find more information at www.chicagoarchitecturalclub.org
