About the Competition

The BP Design Competition is a local ideas competition which challenges participants to think outside the box and imagine a pocket park for a Chicago area neighborhood. Are you up to the challenge?

The competition is hosted by the Chicago Architecture Foundation, in partnership with The Chicago Architecture Biennial, North America’s first architecture Biennial. The Biennial’s theme, “State of the Art of Architecture,” provides a platform for creative minds to explore how our day to day lives can be transformed by the built environment. How might your pocket park transform the lives of others?
