Taking Buildings Down competition, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Storefront for Art and Architecture competition, architecture competition,

Storefront for Art and Architecture has launched an architecture competition that’s far from typical. In their Taking Down Buildings contest, the New York-based organization seeks proposals for the production of voids, from the demolition of structures to the subtraction of objects and matter as creative acts. The competition is described as “simultaneously a political act, a means of criticism, and a method of speculation. A prize pool of $3,500 will be awarded to the top three winners. The registration deadline is January 12, 2016 and the submission deadline is January 20, 2016.

Three monetary prizes will be awarded to the winners of Taking Buildings Down. These include:

1st Prize: $2000

2nd Prize: $1000

3rd Prize: $500


Each proposal should consider and present three items:

1) A pre-existing current condition

2) A process of removal

3) A resultant condition of removal

Proposals should consider contemporary contexts. There are no limitations in scale or scope. The focus of the proposal may be on the process of removal, the resultant condition, or both.

Projects will be judged on their ambition, vision, methodology, and clarity.


The jury will be announced on November 23rd, 2015.
