RESULTS FOR THE 2014

 Int'l Skyscraper & Nat'l Home Design Competition

 

"STRENGTH TO SOAR"

 

 

Friday, May 2, 2014 witnessed the conclusion to the 6th annual International Mock Firms Competition as the Awards Presentation brought the weekends' festivities to a close. Chicago's iconic Congress Hotel on South Michigan Avenue once again served as host to over 100 students representing 25 amateur "firms" from elite architectural design programs from all over the United States. With a theme of "Strength to Soar," 2014 participants were challenged to conceive, construct and commercialize specific commissions which included super-tall towers and homes designed to promote the health and fitness of its tenants as well as the community at-large.

 

For a period of 8 months, aspiring young architects collaborated with each other, instructors and outside professionals to produce tall building and residential housing projects to present before some of Chicago's top design professionals. Each year with 2014 being no exception, these industry leaders serving as jurors express surprise at the level of quality they see especially among the high school programs in attendance. On behalf of Chicago Architecture Today, we would like to say congratulations to each finalist who through dedication and perseverance followed through to produce conceptual buildings which we and I believe many Chicagoans and Jordanians would be proud to have erected in their respective cities. A special thanks also to each instructor at the high school and collegiate level who without which none of this would be possible. We also would like to acknowledge the exceptional contributions of Chicago's own Perkins + Will to this year's competition without which it may not have progressed as well as it did. Finally, on behalf of the students, teachers and sponsors, a heartfelt thank you to all the design professionals who volunteered their time and talent to make this experience one of great meaning and value! All the best to all of the above in their continued academic and career pursuits. A special congratulations to the class of 2014!
