Design and Build Competition Abstract
The Museum of Outdoor Arts (MOA) in Englewood, CO seeks conceptual design proposals for its Design and Build Competition from art, architecture, design and other creatively focused USA based collegiate students, teams, and/or classes. This year’s theme is “Out of This World” and submissions should address the challenge of designing a Monument for Mars. Contestants must design an installation, public art work, architecture, landscape architecture or other form of monument for Mars. The design should utilize architecture, landscape architecture and/or sculpture/installation as a solution while considering environmental impact and sustainability in use of materials. Contestant’s designs will need to respond with their conceptual project under the premise that human kind from Earth will one day occupy Mars and will require a monument designated for the achievement. Entries will be reviewed by the MOA Board of Trustees and Executive Staff.
