Competition: Network Reset

An interesting new competition announced recently entitled Network Reset: Rethinking the Chicago Emerald Necklace, An international competition organized by MAS Studio & Chicago Architectural Club
which asks respondents: “…to look at the urban scale and propose a framework for the entire boulevard system as well as provide answers and visualize the interventions at a smaller scale that can directly impact its potential users. Through images, diagrams and drawings we want to know what are those soft or hard, big or small, temporary or permanent interventions that can reactivate and reset the Boulevard System of Chicago.”

I’m a little perplexed by the new trend of competitions that have a 30 day turnaround between announcement and due date – as it seems to.  Still – I’m intrigued, as it seems to be an interesting problem worth pursuing.  Registration is open, and entries due February 21 – so get moving now.
