DawnTown, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting architecture in Miami, is announcing an open call for portfolios to their new competition: DAWNTOWN DESIGN/BUILD.
In the last four years, DawnTown’s annual ideas competitions have attracted designers from around the world to present new and creative possibilities for Miami. Now in its fifth year, DawnTown seeks to turn these ideas into reality through DAWNTOWN DESIGN/BUILD. This competition seeks the talents of a designer or design team to create a low cost, innovative, and temporary installation in Miami.
The competition is open to architects, artists, and all creative professionals. Designers can work individually or collaboratively in teams, with the requirement that at least one team member is located in the United States.
Interested designers/design teams must submit a six(6) page PDF. The PDF should include all competing participants with a short biography of each, a one(1) page essay on their design philosophy, and samples of their existing work(either built/unbuilt). Work samples should demonstrate an entrant’s ability to be artistic and innovative. Entries will be collected from September 17th, 2012 to October 31st, 2012, with finalists being announced on November 15th, 2012. For complete rules and requirements to register, visit our website www.dawntown.org.
DAWNTOWN DESIGN/BUILD is made possible by the generous grant of the John S and James L Knight Foundation and The Miami Downtown Development Authority. Don’t miss out on a chance to be a part of this inaugural architectural event for Miami!
