Think Space 2012 – PAST FORWARD cycle devised by this year’s guest curator Adrian Lahoud, a former winner in the 2011 Borders Cycle, aims to repeat three competitions that radically transformed architectural culture: The Peak (1982), Yokohama Port Terminal (1995), and Blur Building (1999), with participating architects in the original competition acting as jurors in the current one: Zaha Hadid & Patrik Schumacher (jurors for The Peak), Alejandro Zaera-Polo (juror for Yokohama Port Terminal) and Ricardo Scofidio & Charles Renfro (juror for the Blur Building).
At the conclusion of the competition, a conference in Zagreb will bring together participating architects from both cycles. At the end of the competition phase, a further series of events will be organised including a series of international exhibitions that will display the original submissions alongside the winning competition entries from this Think Space cycle. Storefront for Art and Architecture will host the New York exhibition.
Each competition starts and ends on the same date, so competitors may make their choice and decide on participating in a single or more competitions.
Launching of the Cycle April 27, 2012.
Registration starts on May 5, 2012.
