Participants will be randomly assigned a detailed program brief, submitted by community organizations through a SUPERFRONT open-call, with parameters for a semi-outdoor space to be managed for public activity in Brooklyn. You will have two hours to propose a design idea for construction. Refreshments will be available during the jury discussion following the charrette. After a critique and conversation with the invited jury the selection of the winning design will be announced via email the following day. The selected team’s project will be given the chance to be built. Additional design development is allowed after selection. The installation will open on June 26th and run until August 15th. The selected team will have the opportunity to construct their design in a 1,000 square foot outdoor space behind the SUPERFRONT gallery in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, in collaboration with SUPERFRONT. Construction will be supported through donated materials from Materials For The Arts, other partners, and novice construction volunteers. Winners will be given a budget of $500 for additional supplies. The temporary outdoor installation will open on June 26th and will run until August 15th.
