September 6 - September 21, 2012
Occuprint in collaboration with the Center for Architecture
As part of the exhibition Beyond Zuccotti Park
CALL FOR ENTRIES: POSTERS
The Center for Architecture and Occuprint invite the public to expand the visual language and cultural expression of the conversation on public space and freedom assembly by submitting poster designs that provoke thought and dialogue. Tahrir Square, Pushkin Square, and Zuccotti Park have demonstrated the timeliness of the conversation.
Designs may consider the following questions:
What is the public and what are public spaces? How do we define and how are we defined by our public spaces? How can we design and build our public spaces to facilitate civic participation? What are the processes and mechanism of how public spaces are built and organized? How can we promote transparency in public space regulation and plurality in it use?
Participants may submit as many designs as they would like for digital display in the exhibition. Participants are also invited to take part in an open design critique hosted by Occuprint at the Center for Architecture on September 7, 2012. Occuprint will archive the designs for future viewing and use on their website. Our hope is for the posters to live on beyond the exhibit.
This open call is part of larger exhibition this September at The Center for ArchitectureundefinedBeyond Zuccotti Park a collaborative project by Architects/Designers/Planners for Social Responsibility (ADPSR), Center for Architecture / AIA New York Chapter, The Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture at The City College of the City University of New York, Pratt Programs for Sustainable Planning & Development, May Day Radio, Occuprint, and Occupy Town Square. The exhibition will investigate issues of public space and our right to assemble through publicly curated workshops, teach-ins, panels, discussions, and performances.
Any design that provokes thought and dialogue on democracy, equity, freedom of assembly, and public space.
