Architecture Competition in Salt Lake City

A competition has been launched in Salt Lake City, USA for architects to come up with ideas for the regeneration of two blocks of the city’s downtown area. Entitled ‘SixtyNine Seventy, The Spaces Between: An Urban Ideas Competition’, design teams from around the world will be invited to rethink blocks 69 and 70, an important cultural area of the city. Entrants will submit designs for the ‘inbetween spaces, developing them into the connective tissue linking the area’s cultural amenities’.

Launched on 10 January, the competition will be judged by a panel which includes urban planners, architects, historic experts, artists, and politicians. Two winning projects and fifteen finalists will then be eligible for the People’s Choice Award and the finalists’ designs will be displayed around Salt Lake City.

The competition winners will be announced in June 4 and will have their work published in Architect Magazine. With the area currently undergoing radical changes with new private projects and housing cultural sites such as Capitol Theatre, the proposed Utah Performing Centre and the Utah Theatre, the competition aims to link up the private and public development in the area.
