SUPERFRONT Public Summer 2011 Design Charrette

Category : Event, Public Summer 2011 Jun 11th, 2011

On June 11th SUPERFRONT kicked off Public Summer 2011 with a design charrette. This years theme for Public Summer is industrial space. The jurors of this year’s charrette were Vito Acconci of Acconci Studios, K8 Hardy, Mitchell Joachim of Terra Form, Olympia Kazi of Van Alen, and Ada Tolla of LOT-EK. Each group was allotted two hours to outline a potential design for the 3,000 square foot courtyard where Public Summer 2011 will be held. In the end, the chosen design, as some may already know, was the up and coming architecture design duo CO with their design: WeightlessPull. However, there were a few designs that received honorable mention, they were: Lenses, Tarp, and Bug City. On behalf of the entire SUPERFRONT team, we would like to thank all of the designers that came out and best of luck to everyone! We are now in the process of constructing CO’s design and everyone is welcome to come out and volunteer some time to the construction of the design chosen for Public Summer 2011!
