WHAT'S IN Quad Competition Now Open

Quad Competition 2017
Hosted by WHAT'S IN

“Quad”, short for “Quadrangle”, is one term for the public square at the center of a college campus.  It’s a space to take naps in the grass on a sunny day, throw a Frisbee with friends, or where inspirational lectures are given on a warm spring afternoon. The experience of the quad is one of vibrancy, playfulness, and connectivity. In our increasingly dense urban habitats, city dwellers seek to discover similar environments in the places they live, work, and play.

QUAD 2017 is seeking design proposals that capture the essence of social sustainability by addressing the various factors contributing to the three pillars of sustainability: Environment, Economy and Equity.

This competition is open internationally to design professionals, installation artists, and students. Submitters may be teams or individuals. No professional qualification is required; however, submitters must demonstrate experience producing large-format installations. Only one entry per person/team is permitted.

Phase 1 due May 3rd, 2017

Phase 2 due July 26th, 2017

One winner will be awarded $7,000 USD to execute their design. The winning proposal will be showcased at Greenbuild / ArchitectureBoston Expo from November 8-9, 2017.
