Jury Announced for the Un-Competition Project

We are excited to announce the members of our jury for the Un-Competition Project!

Co-Sponsored by the Chicago Architectural Club and hosted by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Un-Competition Project is a Black Spectacles design competition aimed at promoting design entrepreneurship.  Due on January 9, it asks designers to go out into their communities, “invent” design projects, design them and figure out how to get them built.  Design submissions will take the form of short documentaries that will be posted on Black Spectacles’ Facebook page for consideration by the following, distinguished jury:


    The adoption of digital technologies has been slow and un-even in the Profession of Architecture despite their advantages in efficiency, quality, and access to creative languages that are not available otherwise. The main reason for this is a lack of access to flexible, affordable and high quality courses in design technology.

    We have built Black Spectacles to be the online platform for learning architecture software, with memberships that are affordable, with a platform that provides the flexibility that architects need, and with courses that not only cover software, but how to use multiple digital tools together to get the job done.

    Black Spectacles’ mission is to advance the creative potential of the profession of architecture by giving everyone access to all of the tools- in order to change the dialogue from “what tools are you using” to “what are you doing with the tools”.
