Competition Details

1. Introduction  

Architecture is invading the lower level. The architecture studio is ours, and we´re about to take over “La Cueva,” the brick-vaulted lounge adjacent to the studio. We will be using that space for pinups, reviews, juries, meetings, etc. and we need a series of moveable partitions that will allow multiple groups to use this space simultaneously, while also providing resilient surfaces for pinning up material.  

Your job: to design these partitions. The winning entry will be constructed by the Facilities department. Up to three honorable mentions will also be awarded. You may work individually or in teams. Good luck!

2. Program  

The partition design should be economical, flexible, structurally stable, and durable, and must meet the following criteria:
A. Panels must incorporate wheels or other simple mechanism for movement.

B. Panels must comfortably allow for the display of at least four horizontal A1 sheets or two vertical A0 sheets on both two of the primary faces. 

C. Panels must be able to be stored, when not in use, in or around “La Cueva” and should occupy the minimum amount of space possible when stored.  

D. Panels must be tall enough to provide a division of space.

3. Presentation Format  

Please submit at least the following material, on a maximum of 4 A3 sheets:  

A.  Plan, scale per individual criteria.  

B. Elevation, with scale figure, scale per individual criteria.  

C. Diagram of organization of multiple panels in “La Cueva” during review periods.  

D. Construction Details as necessary and relevant.  

E. Multiple perspectives as necessary to communicate intent.  

F. A brief text, explaining the nature of your proposal.

Please also submit a model of the proposed panel design at a scale per individual criteria.
All material should be submitted to Mar Vega in the Architecture office, no later than 12:00 on Monday 5 December.
