Art Alliance Austin is once again partnering with AIA-Austin and Austin Foundation for Architecture to solicit ideas for the Temporary Outdoor Gallery Space 2 (TOGS 2) competition in 2009. In 2009 the competition welcomes our new partner AIA New York Chapter. Last year''s inaugural TOGS competition yielded 269 registrations from over 20 countries. The winning project A Little Room from the design team of Amy Wynne and Mark Leveno from Los Angeles, California is expected to premiere to the public during Art Week Austin 2009.

The temporary architecture installations will unify the annual outdoor exhibit, provide prestigious gallery space for selected artists, and showcase emerging professional within the international architecture community. The TOGS will ultimately stretch the boundaries of work shown outdoors and will enhance the outdoor art fair experience by showcasing the synergy between art + architecture.

Phase I: Ideas Competition Requirements
1. Successful TOGS proposals will push the limits of creativity for exhibiting art. Within the confines of a 10''-0" x 10''-0" x 12''-0 and 10''-0" x 20''-0" x 12''-0 (adaptable) structure, the space provided will operate much like a gallery. Designers must keep in mind that the space is temporary and exposed to outdoor elements.

2. Design proposals must identify a temporary means of installation for the TOGS, provide illustrations for how the TOGS reinvent the outdoor exhibition space, and how various art mediums can be displayed. For the purposes of this competition, the context of the site or portion of the site is to be utilized. Ultimately, the TOGS could be installed in any location.

3. Designs are to illustrate proper accessibility for the public and prove flexibility with regard to the installation of various art mediums. Designs are encouraged to incorporate sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions.

Evaluation of designs will be based on the following criteria:
- Meets program requirements
- Shows innovation in design
- Integration of the TOGS into the site
- Flexibility in presenting various art mediums

Phase II: Build
While Phase I asks that entrants push the limits of the TOGS, all attempts will be made to produce a full-scale version of the TOGS in Phase II. The winner will be invited to collaborate with an architect to realize a working proposal. Local codes and restrictions will apply and the TOGS will need to meet any and all local laws where applicable. A budget for the TOGS will be established in Phase II and the feasibility of construction will be part of the final execution. The entrant may wish to consider these limitations that would be necessary for the execution of a full-scale prototype, but it is not required for Phase I of the competition.

Phase III: Exhibit
Phase III begins with the winning structure''s premiere at Art City Austin 2010 and an exhibition in New York City. Further securing additional exhibition locations, the TOGS 2 structure and winning boards will be available for exhibition in Austin and on the road.

Any architecture professional / student who has completed their education within 10 years of the competition announcement is eligible. Student applicants must be in their final year of an accredited architecture school or enrolled in an accredited architecture graduate program (B.Arch or M.Arch). Student applicants can also be in their final year of a 4 year architecture program, but the institution must have an accredited M. Arch program. A two-person architect team collaboration is allowed, with the condition that one member of the team must meet the above criteria. Limit of one entry per person or team.
