Category : Announcement, Brooklyn May 12th, 2010

Registration is still open for the Sketch 120 Cypher with the Architectural League May 15! One winning design will get built for a public program in the backyard of the Brooklyn gallery. The competitive charette is produced in partnership with Design in 5, a program of the Architectural League NY.

Jury: DJ /rupture, nArchitects, Slade Architecture
Saturday, May 15 | 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. SUPERFRONT | 1432 Atlantic Avenue | Brooklyn

Participants will be randomly assigned a detailed program brief, submitted by one of ten community organizations through a SUPERFRONT open-call, with parameters for a semi-outdoor space to be managed for public activity in Brooklyn. The selected team will have the opportunity to construct their design in a 1,000 square foot outdoor space behind the SUPERFRONT gallery in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, in collaboration with SUPERFRONT. Construction will be supported through donated materials from Materials For The Arts, other partners, and novice construction volunteers. Winners will be given a budget of $500 for additional supplies. The temporary outdoor installation will open on June 26th and will run until August 15th.

This is the final program within SUPERFRONT’s spring series, “Cypher on Urban Affairs“. More info here.

The Cypher on Urban Affairs public program has been partly enabled by a generous grant from the Brooklyn Arts Council.
