SUPERFRONT BK is accepting proposals from local non-profits, community groups, arts programs, or other civic-minded groups that could use a semi-outdoor space this summer. The 1,000 sq ft space is located behind a storefront on Atlantic Avenue in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn and will be free to the chosen organization. SUPERFRONT will orchestrate the design and construction of this temporary space in the beginning of July for the winning organization’s use, and the space will open to the public from July 9 through August 15, 2010.
DEADLINE for entries: May 8, 2010
All proposals will be posted for public review on the superfront.org website. A group of emerging architects will be invited to develop designs for the most feasible and innovative public programs. Preference will be given to central Brooklyn-based entities that have been operating for at least one year. After a public design charrette on May 15th, the winning design-program combination will be selected for construction.
The winning organization must operate this space alongside SUPERFRONT staff during gallery hours which are every Saturday and Sunday from 1-6 pm, from July 9 through August 15, 2010.
