Design and Build Competition

The wonderfully free-thinking design collective raumlaborberlin are hosting a second shabbyshabby competition, following on from Hotel ShabbyShabby in Mannheim last year, this time addressing the housing crisis in Munich. To take part, download the full brief, and send in your proposal by 30th March 2015.

Some words from raumlabor:

<You are a group of young designers and look for your chance to build? You are a lonely architect at some desk in the basement of a big company and want to get out? You are fed up to produce conformist, market-orientated ideas for investors? You have too many ideas and never a chance to get support for them?

This is your chance!

Design a Shabbyshabby Apartment for public space in Munich until 30 March 2015.
Get chosen by our brilliant jury to come and build it with your team.
Be part of a crazy builders camp in September.

Check our websites and download the application PDF now!
Call your friends and partners, buy some beers and produce an idea next weekend!
Then you have 8 weeks left for the visualization.>

Maps Open Call

This is an open call for artists and designers to submit a proposal/piece of work for an exciting exhibition as part of a new creative platform. We hope to include works from artists, designers and architects in various media and with various interpretations of the brief. The exhibition will be open to the public, have works for sale, and will run alongside a programme of talks and events.

Today we map everything: geography; environment; data; and change in our complex and shifting world. Mapping can be a method of documentation; of passing down knowledge; of gaining knowledge; of communication; or of creating an aesthetic work in itself.

This exhibition, titled ‘Maps’, asks exhibitors to respond to their surroundings, to the here and now, and explore ways of representing the spatial, cultural and personal to the audience.

Please submit two A4s (maximum) including:

  • CV and contact details (include samples of existing work)
  • An outline of your proposal/information on work and how it responds to the brief
  • Details about your piece ie. size/ media/ requirements
  • Supporting images

The exhibition will be held in London, in the month of April 2015. More details will follow.

This call is open until 20/01/15; please submit your proposals to
