Blank Space Kicks Off Architectural Fairy Tales Competition

Once upon a time (OK, last year), in the vast, virtual land of Blank Space, there was a great flowering of architectural ideas for a competition of Fairy Tales. Who’s up for a second round? That’s right–Blank Space’s Fairy Tales competition is back, inviting architects, designers, writers, artists, engineers, illustrators, students, and other creative types to submit their own architectural stories. “The scale, location, and program of the submission is up to each entrant,” according to the organizers. “A successful entry crafts a text narrative, along with five images, in the most spectacular way possible.”

As if you needed more pressure than the word “spectacular” in the guidelines, the 2015 jury includes artist Anish Kapoor, MoMA’s Paola Antonelli, Fuseproject CEO Yves Behar, and OMA partner Shohei Shigematsu. “Architecture is an untapped source of magnificent stories waiting to be imagined, visualized, and built. The world can’t wait to be told stories like this,” says Blank Space co-founder Matthew Hoffman. “We hope many people will accept the challenge and write and design their own.” You have until December 12th to to tell your story, and procrastinators have until the late registration deadline of January 16th.
