Whitehouse Redux Competition Print
Saturday, 26 January 2008 02:23

Submission period begins on March 1, 2008.

What if the White House, the ultimate architectural symbol of political power, were to be designed today? On occasion of the election of the 44th President of the United States of America, Storefront for Art and Architecture, in association with Control Group, challenge you to design a new residence for the world's most powerful individual. The best ideas, designs, descriptions, images, and videos will be selected by some of the world's most distinguished designers and critics and featured in a month-long exhibition at Storefront for Art and Architecture in July 2008. All three winners will be flown to New York to collect their prizes at the opening party. Register now and send us your ideas for the Presidential Palace of the future!

Submission Specs

Feel free to express your ideas for a new White House as you prefer. You can send images, texts, videos, renderings, animations, photographs, descriptions or just about anything else. All we ask is that you stick to the formats listed below.
Your work will be presented to the jury as a printout, or projected if it is a video. A maximum of twelve (12) pages in A3 or tabloid format can be submitted per registration. One 10-minute video can be submitted per registration. One text (max 250 words) can be submitted per registration.
The only acceptable submission formats are JPEG and PDF. If you want to submit hand drawings, sketches, collages etc., please scan them. Although you are allowed a maximum of twelve A3 or tabloid-size panels, feel free to submit less. It's the idea that counts - one page may well be enough.
2D artwork

Each registered participant can submit up to 12 panels.
The dimensions of the panels can be A3 (297mm x 420mm) or tabloid (11 x 17 inches).
The pages should be saved as PDF documents or JPEG files. A mix of the two is acceptable. You can also send a multi-page PDF, so long as it contains no more than 12 pages of the specified format.
Videos and animations

Each registered participant can submit one video with a maximum length of 10 minutes. Videos must be published on YouTube. During the submissions process you will be asked for a link to your video.

Each project can be accompanied by a description of a maximum of 250 words. You will be asked to copy your text into the browser during the submission process.

Feel free to build models of your proposal for a new White House, but please don't send them to us. You should photograph your model and include the pictures in your 12 panels. If your project is selected to exhibit at Storefront, we will ship it to New York for display in the gallery.
