ACADIA 2011 – Design and Fabrication Competition: Open to Architects, Artists & Designers

ACADIA seeks proposals for experimental projects that digitally pursue the discovery, appropriation, adaptation, and alteration of methods, processes and techniques of fabrication and assembly.

The ACADIA 2011 Annual Conference with the support of FLATCUT_ seeks proposals for innovative geometric forms that push the limits of design through the exploration of integrative material strategies for digitally fabricated assemblies.

Proposals for inventive design will be accepted in the following categories:
a. Lighting
b. Partitions
c. Furniture


Winning designs in each category will be fabricated by FLATCUT_ and exhibited in the Integration Through Computation exhibit in Calgary, Canada as part of the 2011 ACADIA conference. Winners will receive complimentary registration to the conference, and stipend of $1000 to offset the costs of attending.

Winning entries will be part of a traveling exhibit after the conclusion of the conference. When the exhibition is complete, fabricated items will be shipped to the winning designers at their expense.

The jury will award runners up and honorable mentions in each category. Images of these projects will be included in the physical exhibit. All finalist images will be exhibited online. The fabrication sponsor may choose to fabricate additional entries at their discretion.
