Utah Black Success Center Design Competition

We are excited to announce the Utah Black Success Center Design Competition! The Black Success Center will be the economic development hub of Utah’s Black Community and will help grow black businesses and jobs. The Center will be a space to collaborate, innovate, and mastermind–the space will include:

  • A lobby and reception area for welcoming guests
  • Classrooms for trainings and workshops
  • An event hall for small to medium-sized events
  • Co-working spaces and meeting areas for start-ups or newly established businesses
  • A main office and virtual admin for organizations that call the center their home.

The Utah Black Chamber of Commerce is currently running a pilot of the middle and launching this statewide design competition to boost awareness, gather local ideas and talent, and help generate concept designs for a structure to be built next year.

The location for the middle remains being determined, so we welcome conceptual designs (without limits) on all aspects of the above. Submitting an entry may be a tangible way Utah based architects, designers, artists and students can show their support for Utah’s Black Community.
