Competition Seeks ‘Street Architecture’ for the Invisible City

Gather ’round, design lovers, and consider the possibilities for collective gathering in the streets of the future.

That’s the brief of a new competition organized by Storefront for Art and Architecture in partnership with the New Museum and the New York City Department of Transportation in the run-up to IDEAS CITY 2015 (now in its third year, the biennial Festival created “to explore the future city and to effect change,” will take place in downtown New York from May 28 to 30). Your mission: design “a work of mobile architecture suited for hosting daring feats of oratory” and is in keeping with this year’s festival theme of “The Invisible City.”

Discuss, debate, and dream on that, and then review the full contest details. The registration deadline is Jan. 23 and entries must be submitted by Feb. 23.
