Architect doll at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) national convention where she was well received by fellow female architects. With 125 careers and counting, Barbie® encourages girls to be anything they want to be  - Barbie® I Can Be™… Architect doll introduces girls to this rewarding career in a way only Barbie® can.

As a way to further engage the design community in I Can Be™ Architect,  the AIA launched  a competition for architects to design their own interpretation of a Barbie® DreamHouse™.  A jury was selected and five finalists have been chosen for the public to vote on and determine the overall winner. While the architects submissions will not be produced by Mattel, it’s still fun to play with Barbie® regardless of your age.

Click here to view the submissions and vote for your favorite.  The competition is open until August 1st, with the winner announced on August 2nd in conjunction with the retail launch of Barbie® I Can Be™... Architect doll.

This is a great opportunity for the public, and children in particular, to read about and see the approach an architect takes to a design project.

Since its earliest days as a growing fishing village on Florida’s west coast in the late 1800s, a pier has been the centerpiece of St. Petersburg, Florida’s downtown waterfront. The current landmark Pier – the seventh in a succession of waterfront piers – opened in 1973 and is nearing the end of its life span, slated for future replacement. St. Petersburg is sponsoring an international design competition for a new, iconic Pier structure.
Interested parties must register for the competition by July 8, 2011. 

Submission of the Statement of Qualifications will be due on July 19, 2011.  A juried panel will select three design teams to be invited to the second phase of the process.  During stage two, the three teams will submit a design concept, and each will receive a $50,000 honorarium for participating in the process.  It is anticipated that a final plan will be approved and contract negotiations will begin with the accepted team early next year.
