Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel has announced that Ultramoderne, a collaboration between architects Yasmin Vobis and Aaron Forrest and structural engineer Brett Schneider, have won the BP Prize in the Chicago Architecture Biennial's Lakefront Kiosk Competition.
Ultramoderne's "Chicago Horizons" beat out 420 other entries from competitors in more than 40 countries (some of them visible on the Biennial's Pinterest page). BP is giving the winning team a $10,000 honorarium and a $75,000 production budget to realize the design, which will be located in Millennium Park for the duration of the Biennial (3 October 2015 to 3 January 2016) and then moved to Grant Park along the lake shore in 2016.

"Chicago Horizons" is basically a wall-free pavilion with a generous roof propped upon columns. The thin roof will be made from cross-laminated timber in the largest dimensions commercially available. The illustrations show a stair leading to a mezzanine level poking through the roof, ultimately providing views of the Chicago skyline and create a new horizon line along the lake.
