My State House: Call for Design Ideas

Date: 10/31/2021 - 1/12/2022

Type: Competitions / Awards

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): Rhode Island


The Rhode Island State House Restoration Society has launched a national ideas competition called My State House. This competition is part of a multiphase project that catalyzes conversation about the role of State Houses in civic and social life. In this current phase of the project, we are inviting community members, activists, architects, landscape architects, artists, futurists, and engineers to submit design concepts that reimagine this iconic building and its grounds to make it more welcoming, accessible, dynamic, and available for community use. As an ideas competition, there are no limitations to what you can propose. Innovative and radical concepts are welcome!

A jury will review all proposals anonymously and will select up to seven to receive a $1,500 stipend to create a more fully developed proposal. These expanded proposals will be exhibited in the Rhode Island State House in summer 2022 alongside other open call proposals and community submissions.

If you are interested in submitting, please register yourself or your team here (Registration is not binding in any way.)

For more information and detailed, step-by-step instructions, see the My State House Call for Proposals available on our website.

Important Dates!

December 5, 2021: Deadline to submit draft concepts for feedback. (Optional).

January 12, 2022: Final proposals due to by 11:59pm EST.
