Award Announcement for the Chinatown Green Storefront

Gateway Initiative :: 
Award Announcement for the Chinatown Green Storefront project!

In an exciting development, AACA has put aside funds for the winning entry to the Chinatown Green Storefront Project. The winning team will receive a $2,000 award with the potential to have their design built in the Summer of 2012. Additionally, through partnership with the Boston Redevelopment Authority, we are pleased to offer a range of seminars devoted to the approvals process, neighborhood history, innovative sustainable practices and cutting edge materials, as a part of your involvement.

Each team will be working with a faculty practitioner and will have a specific Chinatown business owner as a client. Following the creation of an entry for the design competition, all teams will also be creating Design Development documents of their entry, and will be coached by their mentors in the process of putting together a set of drawings. We’re excited to offer this amazing opportunity, and are making this announcement with the offer to still get involved if you haven’t yet expressed interest!
