Olson Kundig Wins the Blank Space Architecture Fairy Tale Contest With a Science-Fiction Story about Seattle For three years running, Blank Space, an online design platform based in New York and Rome, has hosted an open design contest. It’s not a typical call for entries. Fairy Tales asks architects to come up with new tales about myths and magic. It’s an architecture storytelling contest. This year’s winner is Olson Kundig, a Seattle-based architecture firm, which took the contest’s prompt in an unexpected direction. Welcome to the 5th Façade, the winning entry in the Fairy Tales 2016 contest, is part of an ongoing investigation at Olson Kundig. The story follows an unnamed first-person protagonist (it’s the architect himself) as he explores Seattle, a city he calls home but no longer entirely recognizes. A myocardial infarction began midway through Act 1 of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge at the Phoenix Playhouse. Our narrator discovers that many parts of the city are still recognizable, even some five or six generations removed from his first lifetime.
