the urban facelift project: edp’s urban facelift competition
Last Thursday night we, along with AIA Jacksonville’s Emerging Design Professionals, launched the Urban Facelift Competition:
For our last competition of the year, we’ve partnered with Content Design Group to host the Urban Facelift Competition. The purpose of the Urban Facelift Project is to inspire property owners, business owners and the overall community by showing a building’s possibilities as seen through the eyes of the designer. The Facelifts were originally presented as down and dirty four to five hours design charettes that offer a design freedom not usually possible with client interaction. The Urban Facelift Project gives the designer unlimited freedom to push the proverbial design envelope. Buildings are transformed into whatever the designer can imagine.
For this competition, the entrant will be allowed to pick from one of four previously chosen buildings. The provided photos of the buildings must be used to qualify for this competition. The original Facelift projects are done with Google Sketchup and Adobe Photoshop. Entrants can stay with the original format or they can use other rendering programs as well as hand rendering techniques. Whichever format is used, the final images must meet the final entry specifications.
The competition is open to any local Jacksonville (NE Florida) architecture interns and any licensed practicing architects in the first 10 years of practice. For more information, see the competition brief or visit the official competition page.
Entries will be on display for December’s ArtWalk.
If you know anyone that would be interested in entering the competition, please share this information. Thanks!
