Staging Construction is a call for projects that explore construction as both a practice and a performance. Materials & Applications seeks proposals that investigate the act of construction as both an act of building and as a form of industry.
Construction can seem a rather dry affair for a public installation. After all, logistics, staging, industry standards, manual labor are not the seductive tools of design. Yet recent attention to participatory design processes, preoccupation with industrial readymades, satirization of DIY building culture, archeology of building sites, and competitions around demolition suggest that our cultural field is attending to these unseen endeavors intrinsic to the production of architecture.
The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2018.
