The International Living Building Institute, in partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, invites the world’s most talented and daring designers, planners, artists and animators to create a new global vision: a breathtaking, compelling model for the future of civilization. Unleash the power of your imagination to envision a city capable of thriving through the centuries.

Only when we have clearly envisioned the future we must create, will we have the courage to light “the Possible’s slow fuse”.

Our Living City Design Competition is grounded in our belief that we already have the technical tools and collective wisdom we need to achieve true sustainability. But before we can bring our cities into balance with the ecosystems they inhabit, we must understand what that balance would look like.

This is where you come in.

AIA Utah announces the 2010 design/build competition–Ballet West: Fluid Adagio Installation (BWFAI), a first-time-ever joint competition initiated by AIA Utah’s Young Architects Forum. We are calling on all young designers to step up to the challenge!

Local, national and international architects and designers are invited to participate in this blind competition to create a temporary installation (estimated to be 1 to 2 years) that will occupy the future building site for Utah’s premiere ballet company, Ballet West. The project’s site is adjacent to the historic Capitol Theater in downtown Salt Lake City and is currently vacant, thus providing a unique contextual setting in Salt Lake City’s ever-changing urban fabric.
