Not Just a Container design competition

Set to open on Fulton Mall in downtown Brooklyn this summer, the Dekalb Market will bring together creative entrepreneurs in a community setting. The new market will be housed in a collection of salvaged shipping containers and will include an incubator farm, a food market, an events and performance venue, and a collection of eateries and work-sell spaces. The Not Just a Container contest challenges entrepreneurs to design the most creative and innovative uses for a shipping container in a downtown Brooklyn retail location. Uses for the space include, but are not limited to: a farm structure, a store, an art installation, work-sell space, a restaurant, and sports and music venues. Entries will be judged on the following criteria: design quality, sustainability, community impact, and entrepreneurship. The winner will receive six months free rent at Dekalb Market, and $3,000 for the design and construction.

Submissions will be accepted until April 9th – enter yours today!

Eisenhower Memorial Competition 2011

Deadline: 04.15.2011
This spring, the National Civic Art Society (NCAS) and the Institute for Classical Architecture & Classical America (ICACA) Mid-Atlantic Chapter invites classical architects and artists to engage in a competition to design a counterproposal to Frank Gehry's design of a national monument to President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The competition, which is open to any designer or team of designers who are citizens of the United States, will seek to encourage the design of appropriate, meaningful, and timeless memorials to Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th President of the United States, five-star general of the United States Army, Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Europe and Supreme Commander of NATO. It is the hope of the NCAS and ICACA that this competition will encourage dialogue among designers and the general public about the meaning, inspiration and dignity of designs that are suitable to commemorate a distinguished president and general.
Submissions should be designs that embody the traditions of civic art in Washington, DC and should stand in harmony with the vision of the L'Enfant Plan as well as the McMillan Commission. All submissions are due by April 15, 2011. For more information about the specifications as well the monetary awards to be bestowed upon the winners of the competition, please visit:

20+10+X Architecture Awards 10th Cycle

Participate for FREE! The aim of the WA Community Awards is to highlight and publish remarkable projects that might otherwise remain unnoticed by the international public yet have the potential to inspire exciting questions about contemporary architectural discourse. ALL PROJECTS uploaded to the portal are considered as candidates for WA Awards, so we invite architects, architecture students from ALL COUNTRIES to submit their buildings (realized or not) of ANY TYPE for the appreciation of the WA Community.

All projects submitted or updated by their architects after 21 January 2011 will be evaluated for the WA Awards 10th Cycle.

What is distinctive about WA Awards
WA is an “online community” initiated by Suha Özkan and 200+ invited Honorary Members, and a growing number of registered members (13000+ by Sept 2010).
Awarding follows a most democratic procedure where all member’s ratings and the votes of all Honorary Members are effective in the final decisions.

Registrations are completely FREE so that all architects can participate both as candidates and judges.

Architects from ALL countries can submit ALL of their buildings (realized or not) for the appreciation of the WA Community. Recent projects (not older than 10 years) will have more chances to be shortlisted for the Awards. Students, landscape architects, engineers may also submit for the awards projects they are the author of: we do not check or accredit diplomas.

Projects submitted to the WA Portal between 21 January 2011 - 22 April 2011 will be considered for the 10th Cycle. All projects submitted earlier can be reconsidered if their pages are updated with significant new material by their architects.

Criteria for Recognition:
NOVELTY; ORIGINALITY, and CREATIVITY in design that reflect and inspire a commitment to the art of architecture are the major criteria. The WA Portal tries to bridge the gap between theory and practice: thus the architect’s explanations and member’s discussions on submissions will be critical for recognition as much as the design itself.

Deadline for submissions to be evaluated for the 10th Cycle is April 22, 2011. Please note that early submissions will have more chances to be recognized and move higher in the ranks before the Final Assessment Panel.

In May 2011, the shortlisted projects will be online for all members to examine and discuss.

The Panel will complete the voting process, and announce the selected projects during June 2011.

At this last stage, the “Most Thought-provoking +X” projects also will be determined by examining the discussions posted to the pages of the projects.

Submission procedure:
Registration to the WA Portal www.worldarchitecture.org is totally free. Registrants are expected to create their ARCHITECT / OFFICE PAGES (from MY PAGE section) and subsequently many BUILDING PAGES representing their work. For each building 9 images can be uploaded, at least one of them should be an architectural drawing.

Please note that good photographs, a detailed explanatory text and also related links will provide a good presentation for each of your buildings to be considered more seriously. If you also relate your building to the relevant ISSUE PAGES, this will make the intentions that guided the design more explicit. For guidance during submissions, FAQ on the main menu can be consulted


Choosing the “Building Type” is a standard procedure during submissions to the WA Community Portal. The Final Panel (and members) may choose to award projects of any category without any limitation. Forcing them to choose a certain number for each category appears not to be relevant for our aims.
