The Next 100 Years Project stands against racism. Because of recent events and civil unrest around the world, the deadline for submissions to the Next 100 Years Project – Architect Edition has been extended to June 28, 2020 at 11:59PM CDT. As before, the Next 100 Years Project invites architects from around the world to envision a hopeful, post-pandemic future for everyone.
COVID-19. We’re on the front end of this thing. It won’t be days or weeks. It’ll be months or years. When we emerge from this worldwide catastrophe, everything will be different.
We decided that we need relief from the harsh reality of this catastrophe. More importantly, we need big, dreamy, hopeful ideas that will help us navigate the future. To do this, we all need to exercise the sum total of our imaginations. That’s why we created this project.
With The Next 100 Years Project – Architect Edition, we invite architects to speculate on the built environment after the pandemic. It can be a simple cocktail napkin sketch or an elaborate drawing. It can illustrate the smallest detail or the broadest brush stroke of public or private space. It can be pencil or charcoal or crayon or even watercolor, but it has to be done by hand. We also ask architects to write a 100-word essay that describes their image and their vision for the future. Then a panel of experts will judge the entries and the best 100 entries will be selected for a digital book of the project. If selected, your page in the book will feature your image, your essay, your headshot, and a brief bio. It will also include the option to hear you read your essay out loud.
There will be no charge to submit an entry. There will be no charge to view and download the digital book when it’s completed. With The Next 100 Years Project, we created a global community project filled with heart to serve the world.
