Organized in partnership with the Chicago Park District and the City of Chicago, The Lakefront Kiosk Competition calls for the inventive design of a new kiosk that will be installed on Chicago’s lakefront. The competition winner will receive the BP Prize, which includes a construction budget and an honorarium. The winner of the BP Prize for the Lakefront Kiosk Competition will be announced the week of August 3, 2015.
The kiosk’s function transforms through rotation: open pavilion, summer kiosk, a winter chapel; Tinted skylights cast a warm glow during the day and internal lighting combined with colored windows create a waterfront beacon at night. — Light House by Knowhow Shop | Los Angeles, USA — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition

Featuring warm seats and photovoltaic cells, the kiosk will be built using a lightweight steel frame, skinned inside and out with wood, then encased in fiberglass and painted with a glossy, reflective, marine-grade paint. — Jonathan Boelkins, St. Louis, USA — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition

Composed of a translucent free-span roof resting on two structures housing the kiosk and a storage space, the entire construction is built of ordinary squared timber battens, which are recycled through the process of building. — TRU Architects | Berlin, Germany — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition Finalist

Plastic Sunrise is constructed with often discarded colored high-density polyethylene, fused with stone as "plastiglomerate"; the result is a pink and golden morning sky structure with a positive ecological impact. — Plastic Sunrise by  Meredith Miller and Thom Moran | Ann Arbor, USA — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition

"Behind the Curtain" aims to present itself in a manner that tries to conceal rather than embellish its monumentality, iconicity, and symbolism. Indeed, the kiosk's attenuated cylindrical form, composed of a simple base and frame, is simply obscured with a thinly-meshed veil. — Behind the Curtain by Kelley, Palider, Paros | Chicago, USA — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition Finalist

"Chicago Horizon" uses cross-laminated timber, a new carbon-negative engineered lumber product, to create an expansive canopy supported by a series of slender columns. — Chicago Horizon by Ultramoderne | Providence, USA — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition Winner

"Ambient Light" aims to highlight the unique ambience of the waterfront, where sky meets earth and the horizon is exposed and illuminated. The kiosk, using lightweight materials, steel tubes, and fabric cables, forms a circle of translucent fabric that diffuses light, delimits space, and generates privacy. — Guillaume Mazars | Sydney, Australia — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition Honorable Mention

A simple cuboid is transformed into a unique reflective object by shifting the verticality of the walls by 10 degrees in both directions at half height, resulting in isolated views of the environment superimposed in unexpected ways. — toprojekt | Rybnik, Poland — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition

Like a tangram puzzle, the rigid geometry of the cube was fragmented into a pattern of chaises longues which are disassembled from the cube and arranged to fit the vendor’s changing needs. — Vazio S/A | Belo Horizonte, Brazil — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition

The proposal draws from the idea of the wall, a fascination that starts with ancient ruins and temples—objects that are destroyed, but which still live in our memories. The kiosk forms a long, black wall that separates two worlds—the hectic, crowded streets and the tranquil sea. — kollektiv-a | Berlin, Germany — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Honorable Mention
