New York exhibits, NY. On January 22, 2013, Storefront for Art and Architecture will open The Competitive Hypothesis, an exhibition examining the politics behind the architectural competition. The exhibition, presented in partnership with Think-Space (, questions the current state, purpose and value of architecture competitions.

Through four curated spaces within the gallery, The Competitive Hypothesis, will present major architectural competitions produced within the past few years, objects from competitions used to gain competitive advantages, dioramas of image fragments sourced from a selection of recent urban design renderings, and short texts and self portraits of some of the unknown minds of significant competition winners -interns-. The Competitive Hypothesis will highlight the double meanings inherent in the ‘competition’: on one hand referring to the competition as a procurement mechanism for projects, on the other referring to an ethos or disposition that permeates work practice. This exhibition turns to both of these possibilities in order to continue an investigation into architecture’s present condition.

An opening reception will take place on January 22, 2012 at 7pm.
