The Atlanta Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Atlanta), Atlanta BeltLine Inc., and the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs have partnered for a design competition to see a permanent performance pavilion built on the Westside Trail.
According to AIA Atlanta President Melody Harclerode, the mission of this competition is to create a landmark for the Adair Park community and bring more people and art to the Westside Trail. The BeltLine received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to build a performance stage in Reynoldstown.
The only requirement for entry is that an individual or team member be a licensed architect with an active AIA membership. A jury consisting of acclaimed architects (including Michael Arad, who designed the Sept. 11 memorial in New York) and art and civic leaders from around the country will select one first-place winner to receive the $10,000 prize, a second-place winner will earn the $5,000 prize while the third-place winner will collect the $3,000 prize. The deadline is Sept. 15.
