In response to this year’s Chicago Architecture Biennial prompting Make New History, the Chicago Architectural Club launched the 2017 Burnham Prize Competition: Under the Dome. New History is made not from a position of sentimentality toward style, but rather it must be critical of our past and used to inform architecture that is responsive to both its context and future inhabitants. This competition used the historical and typological construct of the dome and called for its critical re-imagination in the context of Make New History.

The announcement of the winners took place at the Chicago Cultural Center October 3rd, 2017. The winners, and an exhibition of selected work are on display during the Chicago Architecture Biennial at the Chicago Cultural Center.

Exhibition: October 3rd- October 14th
Garland Room, Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E Washington St, Chicago, IL 60602
