Enter the Flat Lot Pavilion Design Competition for a Chance at $25K to Get It BuiltJanuary 31st, 2013
The American Institute of Architects – Flint and the Flint Public Art Project have just announced their first annual Flat Lot Competition, a program to design and build a temporary summer pavilion in the central parking lot in downtown Flint. Formerly occupied by a series of office buildings and storefronts along Saginaw Street, the full–block surface parking lot known as the Flat Lot has become a staging ground for parades, flower–plantings, car shows, road races, and almost every sort of public event that draws large crowds. The Flat Lot Competition seeks proposals to design and build an innovative temporary structure that provides shelter, shade, and seating for a wide range of public events, defines space within the lot, and demonstrates the capacity of contemporary architectural form–making to transform space and captivate the public imagination – all while occupying no more than eight parking spaces during normal business hours. The winner of the competition will receive $25,000 to realize their proposal.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE:January 31st, 2013
SUBMISSION DEADLINE:March 1st, 2013
The winner of the competition will receive $25,000 to realize their proposal.
The jury is composed of seven professionals from the local, regional, and international design field, including a representative of Flint Public Art Project, and jurors appointed by AIA–Flint, the DDA, and the chief planning officer. The other three panelists will be internationally accomplished figures from outside of Flint.
