Happy 2014, LBC Collaborative Chicago! We have two exciting announcements to kick off the New Year:
First, we are now in the registration phase of the 2014 LBC Chicago Design Competition. We already have commitments from students at Judson University and IIT, as well as registrations from recent graduates and other professional teams. Our Charrette #1 is scheduled for Jan. 30th / 6:00 PM @ YR&G in Chicago. Everyone is invited whether you are already registered, are thinking about registering, or just want to participate in the discussion. (Registration is now extended through Feb 15, 2014.)
Charrette #1 will present more information about the Eli Whitney school and site assessments that have taken place so far. +Space will also speak about social equity/health/beauty as it relates to the LBC and architecture/urban space in general.
Secondly, we are excited to announce that we have partnered with DIRTT, makers of customizable & sustainable modular wall systems, for the 2014 LBC design competition. (If you have an opportunity, check out DIRTT’s Green Learning Center in downtown Chicago. Cool ideas for modular walls.) DIRTT’s sponsorship has allowed us the opportunity to increase our awards to the following:
(2) tickets to the 2015 Living Future unConference (Thank you ILFI!)
Cash Prize of $1,000
Cash Prize of $250
