Only four weeks left to submit for the Denver Architectural League’s Modern House Competition.
I have to give props to the Denver Architectural League for putting this on. The story goes that the D.A.L. was founded by 10 young architects trying to survive a hard recession back in the mid-1980s. They were so fed up with their draining lack of creative energy, due in part by the same work situations we experience now, that they made a design competition for themselves. Once they hit their deadline and held a reception for themselves, something remarkable happened. The competition seemed to spark something much bigger than the creative juices of the D.A.L., the whole design community took notice.
Why couldn’t it happen again? Especially during April, Colorado’s Architecture Month.
