The Chicago Architecture Biennial announces the Lakefront Kiosk Competition, organized in partnership with the Chicago Park District and the City of Chicago. In keeping with the mission of the Chicago Architecture Biennial, the Lakefront Kiosk Competition is an opportunity to support innovative architectural work and to use the city—more specifically, the iconic shoreline of Lake Michigan—as a laboratory for architectural experimentation.

The competition calls for the inventive design of a new kiosk that will be installed on Chicago’s lakefront, one of the city’s most vibrant public spaces. A jury of architects, curators, and city representatives will select one winner to receive the BP Prize, which includes an honorarium for design development and a construction budget to realize the design.

The winning competition entry will be part of a broader initiative, envisioned by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago Park District, to enhance cultural life on the lakefront. Along with the winning competition entry, three additional new lakefront kiosks will be constructed, each designed by an architect in collaboration with students from a local school of architecture. Participating schools include the Illinois Institute of Technology, the School of the Art Institute, and the University of Illinois Chicago. Details on these collaborations will be announced in early 2015.

All four new kiosks—the winning competition entry, and the three design collaborations with local schools—will be displayed in Millennium Park during the Chicago Architecture Biennial (October 2015 – January 2016) as a featured component of its exhibition program. In the spring of 2016, the four kiosks will be installed on the lakefront. Learn more, here.
