THE 2016 AIA PHOENIX METRO DESIGN COMPETITION THIS IS PHOENIXuncover | highlight | reveal | the essence of phoenix "A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it." - George Moore While we may not always see it for ourselves, each PLACE has the potential to inspire great possibilities. All of us explore, create and move our way through the world. The places we live become the context of our stories. These places hold a unique quality that makes them specific and memorable. This can be called a place’s identity. While Phoenix is a relatively young city, it has a growing identity. The City is calling for that identity to be clarified, highlighted, documented and celebrated in a new design intervention that celebrates the essence of Phoenix. We are calling all placemakers - architects, planners, landscape architects, designers, storytellers, graphic thinkers and visual artists – to help flush out the story of Phoenix. Create a truly unique place or experience that becomes emblematic of who and what we are as a city, a community, a PLACE.
