2020 Competition Abstract- “Art as Sanctuary”
The Museum of Outdoor Arts (MOA) in Englewood, CO sought out team and individual conceptual proposals for its Design and Build Competition from art, architecture, design and other creatively focused USA based undergraduate and graduate students in 2020. Submissions addressed the challenge of designing an Art as Sanctuary structure that the public could use to rest, or take temporary shelter from the elements, near a public open space (natural setting) recreational trail. The design criteria stipulated that students utilize architecture and/or sculpture/installation as a solution while considering environmental impact and sustainability in use of materials. Contestant’s designs responded to one of four hypothetical physical sites for the conceptual project. The below proposals were the selected winners from the entries received.
