The un-competition project

data consegna prorogata al 9 gennaio 2011

Black Spectacles has created The Un-Competition Project. Invent a project, design it, and post your design with a 60 second video.

The purpose: to hear how you came up with your project, what your design is, and how you are going to get it built. So, no, there is no competition brief, you make the project up yourself, big or small- you sell it, and you figure out how to get it built. Then document it in a video, and we'll show it to the world.

Then, after all of the results are in, Black Spectacles has teamed up with the Chicago Architectural Club who will host an event that expands the dialogue about design entrepreneurship that the Un-Competition Project initiates. The winners will be presented, and the event will explore alternate methods of getting work, getting it built, and establishing yourself in the profession.

Submission Details

Your 60 second video should include the following:

1. How you came up with your project, and why you think it needs to be realized.
2. Explanation of your design idea, (include 3D and orthographic drawings/models).
3. Explanation of how you intend to get (or already have gotten) the project realized.
