Queen Anne is home to 21 Little Free Libraries, but there’s always room for more! This summer, LFL creators can enter the Architecture for Humanity Seattle’s Libraries on the Loose design competition. The competition is open to individuals, teams, and businesses across Seattle. Wouldn’t it be great to see a Queen Anne LFL win?
If you’re interested in entering the competition, you need to first register with Architects Without Borders – Seattle. Then, design, build, install, and submit documentation for your LFL to compete against other Seattle LFLs. Additionally, you’ll need to submit digital and physical documentation of the LFL.
Some tips – the maximum budget cannot exceed $150, and additional criteria include adaptability, assembly, community, and creativity.
- Registration Deadline – August 1st
- Submissions Deadline – August 27th at 1pm
- Judging – September 6th
- Winners Announced: Grand Prize – September 6th; People’s Choice – September 14th
- Exhibits: September 6th – 7th during the Seattle Design Festival’s Design Block and September 13th – 14th during the Seattle Design Festival Conference
If you’ve been on the fence about becoming a Little Free Library steward, here’s your opportunity to showcase your creativity and our neighborhood. If you enter the competition, be sure to let us know (and send photos!).
