The Chicago Architecture Foundation has launched an open international ideas competition for a facility that will include a new headquarters, visitor center and exhibition space for CAF; a new headquarters for the Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH); a design and allied arts high school; and flexible learning spaces for out-of-school-time youth programs. The project, dubbed the Center for Architecture, Design and Education (CADE) will a new kind of learning campus aimed to "equip young people to be stewards for the built environment of the 21st Century."

CADE will reaffirm the crucial role architecture and design play in the future of Chicago and will serve as a model for future learning environments that not only improve student achievement but act as catalysts for vibrant community engagement around local design challenges and opportunities. In order to demonstrate the opportunity of a new educational model, the design of CADE will need to integrate four major programmatic areas: CAF headquarters and cultural programing; CTBUH headquarters and professional programming; design and allied arts high school; and out-of-school time youth programming."
