DETAILS
FURTHER DETAILS
Since Governors Island first opened to the public in 2004, the attention and interest that this new public place has received has increased exponentially. In 2010, over 400,000 people visited the island through its summer season (early June to mid October) to engage in a variety of arts and cultural programs, as well as to enjoy summertime activities like picnicking and bike riding on the island. FIGMENT, one of the island’s key cultural partners, has teamed with the Emerging New York Architects Committee (ENYA) of the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter (AIANY) and the Structural Engineers Association of New York (SEAoNY) to sponsor a competition to design and construct an architectural pavilion for the 2011 summer season on Governors Island, the City of Dreams Pavilion. The 2011 pavilion will be our second City of Dreams Pavilion Design Competition. The result of our first design competition, in 2010, was the Living Pavilion, designed by Ann Ha, Assoc. AIA, and Behrang Behin, Assoc. AIA. We are excited to announce we are now accepting entries for The City of Dreams 2011 Pavilion competition! The City of Dreams Pavilion will be a gathering place for people to meet, learn about the arts programs on the island, be able to enjoy a performance or lecture, and experience the interaction of art and the historic context of Governors Island. Our theme for the pavilion, the City of Dreams, points toward the future. If we imagine a future New York City where anything is possible, what would it look like? In our wildest and most optimistic dreams, what is the future of the city? The current state of the world is such that both economic and natural resources are limited in ways we have never experienced in our lifetimes. A new way of thinking is necessary to solve the problems that the world faces. Inevitably, the result will be a change in the basic practices that have driven the world to its current state. One place to start to activate and energize these changes in within the architecture and design community, where the movement toward sustainable design has only scratched the surface of what is possible and necessary. To Submit a Proposal: 1 Register by January 15, 2011. The fee to enter is a tax deductible donation to FIGMENT, which will be applied to the costs of building and maintaining the winning entry, as follows: • Student entries – $20 • Individual entries – $50 • Group entries – $80 After you have registered you will receive a link to download a submission packet with the City of Dreams Pavilion 2011 Design Guide and reference images of Governors Island, the 2010 Living Pavilion, and FIGMENT projects that have been built previously on the island. 2 Submit your City of dreams Living pavilion proposal by 11:59pm ET on February 1, 2011. 3 Our jury will meet and we will notify all finalists by March 1, 2011. Entries are encouraged from individuals or teams of architects and non-architects of any age or experience level, provided they are prepared to carry out the project. Attribution of the winner and finalists will be given based on the names of the individuals who enter, rather than to any firm with whom they are affiliated. Proposal Criteria Instead of a typical design competition, the City of Dreams Pavilion asks entrants to consider how they will construct this temporary structure in the most efficient and sustainable way possible. Entrants should consider the entire lifecycle of building materials in their submission. Whether they do this by identifying companies that produce “cradle to cradle” products, garnering sponsorships from environmental or socially conscious groups, or re-using waste from construction sites, the materials used and the installation process should have as little impact as possible on the environment. Entrants should submit where their materials are to come from, how their structures will be transported to the site, how they will eliminate waste during installation, and how they plan to disassemble and reuse the materials after the island closes for the season. In other words, entrants are being asked to consider using “borrowed” materials—from existing construction sites and from places where the materials can be returned after the season is over and the temporary structure is disassembled. In the end, the goal is to create a pavilion that has net zero impact and that serves as a prototype for a new, truly sustainable, way of thinking about design and construction. We anticipate that the pavilion will be installed in FIGMENT Terrace, a courtyard surrounded on three sides by Liggett Hall, and directly through an archway through the building from Colonels Row, where many summer concerts and events take place. For the last three years, FIGMENT Terrace has been home to FIGMENT’s season-long exhibitions: a Minigolf Course and an interactive Sculpture Garden, and we anticipate that these exhibitions will be returning in 2011. Final placement of the pavilion is, however, subject to change and discussion with the Trust for Governors Island upon selection. We have included CAD plans and aerial photos in the City of Dreams Pavilion 2011 Design Guide for your use in preparing your proposal. Essential requirements of the proposal are as follows: • Create a gathering place for 50 or more people, providing shade and rain cover • Provide an integrated performance area/stage for small dance performances, music ensembles, and/or spoken word productions • Consider the full lifecycle of the materials used—where they come from and where they will go after the island closes for the 2011 season • Provide for the design and installation of the project, including sourcing all materials • All materials must be able to be transported on the Coursen Ferry (12’6” clearance) • The structure must be freestanding, and cannot penetrate the ground to a depth greater than 6” • The design must be approved by the Trust for Governors Island, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC), and the NYC Department of Buildings prior to installation • Include a budget that anticipates all costs of fabrication, transportation, installation, and de-installation. Budgets should be no more than $20,000. Optional considerations: • How will the pavilion support educating the public about arts programs on the island? • How will the pavilion support informal performances or lectures? • What other kinds of activities could take place in the pavilion? Selection criteria that the jury will consider: • Proposal feasibility and buildability • Lifecycle considerations and overall environmental impact • Adherence to theme • Design impact • Innovative use of materials Proposal Requirements Please name your submitted PDF file in the following manner: [designer or team name] – [name of proposed pavilion].pdf The final entry should be submitted via email to pavilion@figmentproject.org by registered entrants by February 1, 2011, and should include a total of three (3) 11”x17” pages in PDF format, as follows: Page 1-2: Proposed Design Please include graphics that show how your project will look, and how it will be constructed. Please feel free to use any graphic style that is comfortable for you: hand-drawn, Sketchup, Illustrator, CAD are all perfectly acceptable. The most important thing is clarity. Page 3: Supporting documentation • Please detail what materials you plan to use for the project, bearing in mind the full lifecycle of the materials used: Where do they come from? Where do they go after the project is de-installed? • Please include a budget that shows your budget for materials and expenses. Budgets should be no more than $20,000. Designers will be reimbursed for materials purchased up to a certain amount yet to be determined, pending fundraising for this project. As this is a blind competition, the entries should not disclose the name(s) of the entrant(s) in the PDF file, only in the covering email, and in the name of the PDF file. Please address any questions about the competition to pavilion@figmentproject.org.

About FIGMENT FIGMENT is a forum for the creation and display of participatory and interactive art by emerging artists across disciplines. FIGMENT began in July 2007 as a free, one-day participatory arts event on Governors Island in New York Harbor with over 2,600 participants. Since then, FIGMENT has grown significantly each year—in number of projects, duration, participants, volunteers, fundraising capability, exhibitions, locations, overall level of commitment and participation, and public support. In 2010, the FIGMENT event on Governors Island had nearly 25,000 participants, over 400 works of interactive art, and a volunteer team of over 300. In addition, FIGMENT created a season-long exhibition of 16 large-scale interactive sculptures and an artist-designed minigolf course. In addition, 2010 marked the first year that FIGMENT worked with ENYA (the Emerging New York Architects Committee of the AIA New York Chapter) and SEAoNY (the Structural Engineers Association of New York) to host a design competition to create an arts pavilion on the island. FIGMENT is a project of Action Arts League, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, and is created and produced by a coalition of volunteers. FIGMENT is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council. ABOUT ENYA It is the goal of the Emerging New York Architects Committee to encourage membership, participation, and leadership in the AIANY Chapter among intern architects, young architects (licensed 10 years or less), and emerging professionals in the fields of design and construction. The committee engages NYC’s diverse emerging design professionals through lectures, design competitions, and networking opportunities, with a focus on Professional Development, Design Excellence, and Public Outreach. Founded in 1857, the AIA New York Chapter is the oldest and largest chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The Chapter’s members include over 4,600 practicing architects, allied professionals, students, and public members interested in architecture and design. The AIA New York Chapter is dedicated to three goals: design excellence, public outreach, and professional development. ABOUT SEAoNY SEAoNY is a member organization of the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations. Presently, 39 states and the District of Columbia have structural engineers’ associations, the largest of which is SEAOC, Structural Engineers Association of California, which was founded in 1930 and presently has approximately 4000 members. The association sponsors workshops, panel discussions, lectures and seminars with the aim of addressing topics of interest and concern to structural engineers. Our membership, which is over 500 members, includes individuals from most major structural engineering design firms in New York State. SEAoNY also reaches out to other professionals, outside the engineering community, who work in related fields with common interests. Currently, 10% of our membership are affiliate members who come from a variety of disciplines such as geotechnical, civil, construction management and architecture. The purpose of SEAoNY is to advance the art of structural engineering in New York by improving the flow of ideas and building the community of colleagues.
