The Salvation Army is using a design competition to select architects for its new $70,000,000 community center, funded by a bequest from the late widow of McDonald's founder Ray Kroc. The center is to be built on a 25-acre site at 47th and State. The competition is in three phases, the first of which is a Portfolio phase, where firms that wish to compete must register and submit examples of work by July 19th. A Jury will then select a list of up to eight firms to move on to the second phase, where the firms will assemble complete A/E teams. In the last phase, four firms will be invited to participate in a 30 day design concept competition with a $25,000 honorarium.
