Yarışma Bilgileri

Art Alliance Austin is harnessing the momentum of an exciting opportunity to move its outdoor art fair, Art City Austin, to a new location in 2008. Temporary architecture installations will unify the annual exhibit, provide prestigious gallery space for selected artists, and showcase emerging professionals within the architecture community. The intent of the competition is to bring Austin to the forefront of the international world of the art and architecture community.

The purpose of this Design Competition will generate proposals for a secure temporary space for the exhibit of fine art. The outdoor setting requires that the proposed prototype provide both protection for and exhibition of juried works (during the day as well as evening). Unifying the exhibition through temporary architectural spaces that facilitate and enhance the installation of work by selected artists.

Our goal is to revolutionize the Art City Austin experience by showcasing the synergy between art and architecture and to provide an experience that embodies the creative spirit of Austin.

Phase I of Program - Requirements
1. Successful TOGS proposals will push the limits of creativity for viewing art. Within the confines of a 10''-0" x 10''-0" x 12''-0 or 10''-0" x 20''-0" x 12''-0 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 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 of Program
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 a local 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 the Ideas Competition of Phase I.
