Design in 5 Charrette
Sketch 120: “?ism”
Saturday, October 17
2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
The Noguchi Museum
9-01 33rd Road (at Vernon Boulevard)
Long Island City
On Saturday, October 17th, come to the Noguchi Museum and participate in a sketch problem and open forum with an invited jury to hear your work discussed.
In 1913, Walter Gropius wrote, “The new times demand their own expression?The dominant spirit of our epoch is already recognizable although its form is not yet clearly defined.” Sketch120 will ask participants to think about the future of architecture and form. The first part of the brief will be sent to registered participants on Friday, October 16. On Saturday, the 17th at 2:00 p.m., the specific design problem will be given to participants at the Noguchi Museum to solve in roughly two hours. All work will then be pinned up and the invited jury will hold an open discussion and critique with participants. A critical conversation will emerge from the work generated and the questions posed by the original brief.
The charrette is aimed at young designers five years or less out of school; whether you are a graphic, industrial, fashion designer, artist, architect, or planner, Design in 5 invites you to attend. Refreshments will be available. You may participate as an individual or as a team of up to three people.
Registration is required. Registration for Sketch120 is $10; Architectural League and Noguchi Museum members receive free registration. Members should email email@example.com to register; non-members visit www.archleague.org to purchase tickets. Included in your registration is free admission to the Noguchi Museum for the day. Design in 5 and the Architectural League wish to thank the Noguchi Museum for generously hosting the event.
