The postmark deadline for submissions is January 16, 2007, and winners will be announced online on February 16, 2007.
Architects, designers, theorists, urbanists, and landscape architects are invited to enter this ideas competition. Following the success of the inaugural “call for ideas,” which produced the Pamphlets 2328, Pamphlet Architecture, with renewed support from the National Endowment for the Arts, announces the 2006 competition. To promote and foster the development and circulation of architectural ideas, Pamphlet Architecture is again offering an opportunity to publish designs, manifestos, ideas, theories, ruminations, hopes, and insights for the future of the designed and built world. With far-ranging topics including the alphabet, algorithms, machines, and music, each Pamphlet is unique to the individual or group that authors it. This call for ideas seeks projects that possess the rigour and excitement found throughout the rich history of Pamphlet Architecture. The winning submission will engage important issues facing architecture, landscape, and/or urban design today in a way that is as visually provocative as it is intellectually compelling.
The winner will be given a grant of $2,000 to develop the proposal into a print-ready manuscript, which will be published by Pamphlet Architecture, Ltd/Princeton Architectural Press.
