Blank Space reveals New Fairy Tales Book featuring 25 beautifully illustrated stories

Blank Space, an online competition platform for architecture, released its the third volume of the Fairy Tales book last week. Led by Matthew Hoffman and Francesca Giuliani, Blank Space runs international competitions to provoke society's role in architecture and bring new initiatives and discourses through communication, writing, narrative, stories and illustrations. Focusing on a good communication in architecture, Blank Space creates new opportunities for design to engage the public via their innovative and powerful competition topics.

The third volume of the Fairy Tales book will ship shortly, and today is the last day to pre-order a copy for $14 and save some money off of the cover price.

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 this year's competition, out of a field of 1,500 participants. The format of each story varies dramatically - from comics to love stories, text messages to police reports - but the mission is the same: to dramatically rethink how architecture addresses the real issues we face today.

Pre-order your copy here. All pre-orders will be shipped by August 19th.
