Posta Aerea 03

Time once again for another edition of selections from the mailbag. This week we have two announcements regarding competitions to pass along, one exhibition listing and an interesting link to an article in New York magazine.

The first competition is sponsored by the Architectural League of New York, Young Architects Forum 2008 and is due on February 11, ’08. Here is a brief from the Call for Entries:

“Young architects and designers are invited to submit work to the annual Young Architects Competition. Projects of all types, either theoretical or real and executed in any medium, are welcome. The jury will select work for presentation in public forums, an on-line installation, and an exhibition at the Architectural League beginning in May 2008. Winners will receive a cash prize of $1,000. A poster of the winning entries will be published and distributed nationally, as will a catalog of winning work published by the Architectural League and Princeton Architectural Press. The Young Architects Forum is an annual competition, series of lectures, and exhibition organized by the Architectural League and its Young Architects Committee. The Forum was established to recognize specific works of high quality and to encourage the exchange of ideas among young people who might otherwise not have a forum.”

The next competition is sponsored by Ceramic Tiles of Italy and their media release is below:

“Ceramic Tiles of Italy is now accepting entries for their 15th Annual Design Competition. The competition celebrates outstanding examples of contemporary American design featuring fabulous Italian ceramic tiles. North American architects and interior designers are invited to submit residential, commercial and institutional projects completed between January 2003 and January 2008. Entries may be submitted for domestic and international new construction and renovation projects. Winners in each category will receive a cash prize of $5,000 and a trip to Coverings which will be held in Orlando, Florida from April 29th – May 2nd, 2008. Winners will also be treated to a 5-day trip to Cersaie 2008, the world’s largest exhibition for ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings and join a delegation of leading design media journalists. The organization will once again offer an additional $1,000 to be shared by the winning contractor/distributor team.”

For those readers in Asia, the Seoul Design Week 2007 opens today and runs through 12/28/07.

From New York magazine comes this interesting news blurb:

“This week in New York magazine’s “Year in Culture” issue, architecture critic Justin Davidson names the ten best things that the architecture world had to offer this year, from the best new building (The New Museum of Contemporary Art)(by SANAA) to the best new interior (Tiffany & Co on Wall Street). See his picks at”

And finally a sad note…the quality design blog has apparently left the building. Thanks for the inspiring posts.
