FUTURE FOCUS: EMERGING DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT EXHIBITION
Presented by the AIA Detroit Emerging Professionals Committee
AIA Detroit would like to recognize the contributions made by Emerging Professionals at this year’s Celebration of Architecture, and beyond. By calling for both academic and professional works, this exhibition hopes to shed light on critical research, important conversations, diverse portfolios, and impactful work that Emerging Professionals contribute to the profession both here in the city of Detroit and beyond. Selected work will be displayed at this year’s Celebration of Architecture, an event with over 3,000 attendees in 2016, and which coincides with the Detroit Design Festival and Eastern Market After Dark. The exhibition will then be remounted at future AIA Detroit events, including the AIA National Leadership Institute and AIA Detroit Annual Meeting on November 16th.
We are seeking projects in 3 major categories: Unbuilt, Built, and Detroit. While a project may qualify in more than one category, the committee asks that applicants pick a primary category under which to submit their work. All approved entries will be featured on the AIA Detroit website. Projects selected by the Exhibition Jury will be featured at Celebration on September 28, 2017.
All categories will consider both academic and professional works designed within the last 5 years.
The jury will be comprised of members of the AIA Detroit’s Executive and Emerging Professionals Committees and have full discretion in reviewing projects to be included in the exhibition. Projects will be judged in a blind format without consideration for author, affiliated academic institution or professional firm.
All work is to be submitted digitally to FutureFocus@AIADetroit.com no later than 6:00pm, WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 6th.
Any difficulties in submitting work or other questions can be directed to: FutureFocus@AIADetroit.com
