FAIRY TALES VOLUME 1 ($12)

The first volume of Fairy Tales brings together a collection of 24 captivating architecture fairy tales from over 300 entries in Blank Space’s inaugural “Fairy Tales” competition. The competition challenges entrants to develop visionary, narrative-based design proposals, rewriting the way architecture communicates itself and unlocking the power of architecture through storytelling. In an eclectic array of forms – from stories, to poems, memoirs, and comics – these fairy tales bring new meaning to architecture, its value, and its place in society.

The second edition of “Fairy Tales: When Architecture Tells A Story” includes the 25 best entries to the second annual Fairy Tales competition organized by Blank Space. The submissions, handpicked by a star-studded jury, are a kaleidoscopic collection of stunning images and gripping stories, daringly experimenting in the visual realm as well as in the storytelling field. Check your preconceived ideas of architecture at the door and enter a magical universe where traditional rules don’t apply, and new ones are imagined.

FAIRY TALES VOLUME 3 ($12)

Since its inception in 2013, the Fairy Tales competition has grown to be the largest annual architecture competition in the world. This book brings together 25 of the most innovative stories submitted to the third annual competition. The format of each story varies dramatically – from comics to love stories, text message threads to police reports – but the mission of each is the same: to dramatically rethink how architecture can be leveraged to address the real issues we face today.
