ABOUT [UN]RESTRICTED ACCESS
This competition, focused on re-purposing vacant military structures and sites, will catalyze awareness, ideas, and most importantly – actions.
Through this global forum, designers and architects will develop solutions that reconnect military and civilian communities. The history of these important spaces will be highlighted while hidden potential is uncovered.
Every other year, Architecture for Humanity’s Open Architecture Challenge (OAC) brings international attention to issues in the built environment affecting the health, prosperity and well-being of under-served communities. The upcoming 2011 Open Architecture Challenge: [un]restricted access: from military space to civic space asks designers to develop imaginative and revolutionary ideas for re-purposing abandoned, closed or decommissioned military sites and structures around the world.
Base closures can have an adverse affect on the surrounding community. In Albania, more than 750,000 bunkers pepper the landscape — a constant reminder of its isolated past. In the U.S. alone, nearly 12 million square feet of leased military space will be vacated resulting in the loss of an estimated 18,000 civilian jobs in the latest round of closures.
The Open Architecture Challenge reaches beyond traditional bounds of architecture by challenging designers and architects to partner with community groups and to develop together innovative solutions that improve the built environment.
The 2011 Open Architecture Challenge will invite architects around the world to re-design retired military sites. This competition requires that designers work with communities surrounding these former places of conflict to transform hostile, and oftentimes painful, locations into sites where groups can gather, create and heal.
The purpose of the contest is to design a graphic icon and banner, which will be used on all online and print collateral related to the Challenge. Given the global reach of the Challenge, the graphic icon must serve as a universal symbol of the competition and may be used apart from the banner.
- Original .psd or .ai file required (the final version of the Challenge icon and banner will need to be suitable for high quality printing)
- Online banner dimensions are 600 x 300 pixels
- The banner must contain the words “2011 Open Architecture Challenge: [un]restricted access” (you decide the case, no quotes required).
- Optional — Any external collateral that you think might be helpful
MEDAL OF HONOR
night vision goggles (seriously). Oh, and $500 USD cash prize and recognition in collateral related to the competition.
