Downtown Orlando is changing. The citizens of Orlando and Orange County have approved the much needed and highly anticipated 3 Venues projects, Including the Orlando Events Center, The Citrus Bowl expansion and modernization and the Dr. P. Phillips Performing Arts Center (DPPAC).

The American Federal Building (The Round Building) occupies the southwest corner of the site of the DPPAC and is scheduled for complete demolition.

The mission of the title sponsor of Round Building Reuse : 360, Nils M. Schweizer Fellows | Central Florida Modern, is to promote awareness and seek the preservation of Florida''s mid-century modern architecture. They are a nonprofit corporation composed of design enthusiasts who have united to advance this cause.

With that CFLM understands the importance the DPPAC will have on Downtown Orlando. It is not the intent of this competition to save or restore the entire American Federal Building on its current site, or disrupt the progress of the DPPAC. It is our objective to have the competitors develop an innovative reuse of the Round Buildings precast concrete brise soleil on another site or sites.

Competition entries will provide valuable creative material to support the preservation effort of Central Florida Modern. Designs and Ideas will be used to create excitement, support, funding and a new purpose to a vestige of Central Florida’s Modern heritage.

This is an open ideas competition. Architects, intern architects, designers, artists and anyone with a creative solution are invited to submit proposals.

Entrants will be able to participate individually or in groups. There is no limit on the number of participants in a group entry. Interdisciplinary teams are encouraged. There is no limit to the amount of entries.
