Blank Space is rewriting the way architecture is communicated and unlocking the power of architecture through storytelling. Early on we recognized a split between architecture and the rest of the world by observing how architects only talk to each other, and we set out to change that. Every endeavor that we initiate takes fun very seriously and strives to be audacious enough to ignite imaginations. Through competitions, publications and design projects, we focus on what matters most: inclusion, empowerment, and creating new opportunities for design to engage the public.
Fairy Tales is the world’s first architecture storytelling competition, encouraging creatives to submit a design accompanied by a textual narrative. We hold the competition annually. The 2015 edition is now open for registration!Registration Is Now Open
“Fairy Tales: When Architecture Tells a Story” is an anthology of stories written and illustrated by designers from all over the world. It contains the best submissions to our 2014 Fairy Tales competition, from the 300+ entries we received.Buy A Copy For $15
An eclectic group of design enthusiasts from different backgrounds is what makes Blank Space unique. We value communication as much as aesthetics, and we strive to combine the two in meaningful, innovative ways.Learn More
