Comment | More

The International Council of Shopping Centers Inc. (ICSC) is inviting entries in the “Future Image” Architecture Competition, featuring architectural innovations of the shopping center of the future. The council said the program is aimed at stimulating “new visions for the industry” by suggesting concepts for the shopping center of 2029 to 2059.

The council said the competition is open to all architecture professionals worldwide who are members of ICSC, and is intended “to encourage individuals to envision the shopping environment of the future, to inspire and entertain the retail real-estate industry with out-of-the-box, innovative ideas that will progress our current understanding of the shopping experience.”

Ideas are not limited to design and architecture, and may include any aspect—specific or general—of the retail continuum. Entries will be judged by a panel of professionals that includes Barry Bergdoll, The Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture & Design at The Museum of Modern Art, and Professor of Architectural History in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University; Allison Arieff, New York Times “By Design” columnist and editor at large for Sunset magazine; and Reena Jana, Business Week “Innovation Department” editor and co-author of the book “New Media Art” (Taschen, 2006).

Competition winners will be selected in categories of The Mall Environment; The Shopping Experience; The Merchandise Mix; Dining and Entertainment; Parking and Transit; Green; and General Brilliance and Innovation.

All submissions in the competition will be exhibited in the Future Image Gallery during ICSC’s annual convention, RECon, described as the largest gathering of the retail real-estate industry worldwide, scheduled for May 17-20 in Las Vegas. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, May 19.

Information on competition guidelines and submission of entries is available on the website located at www.icsc.org/2009SC/futureimage.php. The deadline for submissions is April 20.
