TEMPORARY OUTDOOR STRUCTURES FOR 2013 IDEAS CITY FESTIVAL
NEW YORK MAY 1-4, 2013
Registration Deadline: January 18, 2013
Submission Deadline: February 8, 2013
As part of the 2013 IDEAS CITY FESTIVAL, Storefront for Art and Architecture jointly with the New Museum and Architizer are launching the StreetFest competition for the design, management, and construction of temporary outdoor spaces that produce new ways for collective gathering and city engagement. On Saturday, May 4, 2013, one winning entry will occupy designated outdoor space along the Bowery during the StreetFest. We envision fabricating a minimum of ten structures that will cover approximately 1000-1500 square feet. These temporary outdoor structures will accommodate a multiplicity of activities including: vendors, workshop areas, outdoor classrooms, demonstrations, installations, music, and other performances and exhibitions.
This competition asks for designs that envision street tents not only as shelters but also as active elements within the collective construction and understanding of the city. StreetFest calls for architects, artists and engineers to re-envision the performativity of temporary outdoor structures including the material, social, and educational possibilities.
