Temporary Outdoor Installation

Atlanta, GA – USA

Competition 2010

10′ x 10′ Buildable Area

Design Architect: Gaston Carrio
Competition Website: www.10up.yafatlanta.org

Competition Brief and Program:

“The goal of this temporary installation is to create a unique spatial experience while also complementing the Modern Atlanta event with a large scale design element accessible to hundreds of event patrons. To advocate architecture and encourage artistic endeavors throughout Atlanta in the future, Young Architects Forum (YAF) is encouraging the opportunity to design and build a temporary outdoor installation. This installation will heighten the purpose and exposure of architecture, in order to construct a more educated and encouraging public.”

Design Considerations.

“Special care should be taken in the selection of materials and construction techniques as those that can be prefabricated and installed quickly with simple tools will work best, given the assembly crew. Modularity is encouraged as pieces and parts of the project should be able to be moved and carried by one or two individuals. Consideration should also be given to the possibility of assembly/disassembly so the installation could potentially be reassembled in other locations in the future.”

Buildable Area.

“No more then a 10′-0″ x 10′-0” footprint within the Site constrains. Please see the Site tab for a Site Plan and context information. The height is to be determined by the participant, but all aspects of public safety should be accounted. The work should be able to stand independently with incorporated safety provisions as defined by local codes. Entries should take into account the process of assembly, takedown, portability and transportability. The goal is to have ability to assemble within 24 hours. Natural elements should be considered in the design. Although not a requirement, participants are encouraged to engage systems and ideas of sustainability as well as innovative program types.”
