Design Competition Disclaimer

This Thursday, the nine design teams entered in the Framing a Modern Masterpiece competition (better known as the "Arch design competition") held a public networking session at the Old Courthouse. The next day, one of the teams invited me to join, and I accepted.

I will be a member of the team including SOM, BIG, Hargreaves Associates, Jaume Plensa and URS. The next few months will be exciting and fast-paced, and I look forward to participating in the competition from inside. I remain stunned and grateful for the invitation!

Consequently, however, I will be unable to write about the process for the duration of the competition. If this blog is silent on the competition, there is a good excuse.

Yeah. wow, sounds like a great opportunity. To bad we won't be able to get your perspective on the designs. But i can't wait to see what the team comes up with.
