The Finalists for this year's competition have been selected. Please visit the Finalist webpage
for a listing of their names, schools and a description of what they
will receive in recognition of their accomplishment. Thanks again
to all of the students that participated, the designs submitted were
some of the highest caliber work since the competition started three
years ago. Please check back to the Finalist webpage on Monday,
May 21st to view the drawings of the winning entries. (May 8, 2012)
I have been asked by a couple schools if the deadline could be extended
for the student design submittals. In light of the fact I was
planning to move back the tour date (due to a conflict with one of the
tour stops), I thought the additional time available could be used by
the students to improve/add more to their designs if they would like.
THE NEW DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTALS IS MONDAY, APRIL 30th. If
your design has already been sent in, you may make changes and
re-submit, otherwise we will use the current submission for judging.
For those students that have been considering entering, but did
not submit a design, take advantage of this opportunity to enter - all
submittals will be considered. (April 16, 2012)
A couple students have been asking questions about the park's
parameters, most of which is covered on the competition's website at
the above link. I wanted to post the link again here, just in
case there are still some students that have not found the webpage:
There are many helpful tools and information for your designs.
Please look throught it and email me with any questions. (February 23, 2012)
Some of the students have asked where to locate information about the
Cloud Arbor sculpture piece to be included in your designs. A
written description, drawings (plan and elevation) and images of the
artist's conceptual design, as well as a YouTube video of a mock-up of
how the Cloud Arbor will work are located on the competition website's
information page (the above link, just below the YouTube video on this
page). A plan and elevation of the piece is also located on the
left side of the site drawing, inside the CAD drawing file, for your
reference and use. The Cloud Arbor needs to be inserted into the
site (to scale), anywhere you choose, to best accent your design.
Keep in mind the sculpture piece is interactive, with the spacing
of the poles large enough for people to walk through the piece, to
experience the mist that creates the cloud coming out of the poles.
So, consider how best the sculpture can be utilized by people
using the park, walking through, or children playing. (February 2, 2012)
