Type: Open competition for architects and architecture students
International ideas competition that invites architects, designers & artists to participate in the Centennial Festival of Riverboats through the design of a small-scale, temporary and multipurpose pavilion to be used in series throughout the Waterfront. The pavilions will accommodate a variety of activities during the event. Actual uses may include music performance space, seating, bourbon tasting space or areas for vending and exhibitions. Because of its repetition along the event grounds, the winning pavilion will play a major role as a visual and programmatic cue for the festival.
Entrants should clearly represent the form, material and fabrication strategy of the proposed structure while communicating the design’s relation to the site and event. The scale of the pavilions should be seen as that of a small gallery or stage area (roughly 750 square feet each). The final scale and form of the project is the decision of the individual designer or design team. Entrants are required to consider material availability and complexity of assembly on a budget of $8,000 per pavilion. Entrants will have no control over the placement and orientation of their designs.
