Expired: The Bench 2017: International Design Competition

The Bench 2017: International Design Competition

The Bench is an idea based design competition open to all ages and backgrounds. The challenge of the competition is to design and install a temporary structure on a street to transform the street environment to a form of public space. The competition will unfold in two phases: selection by jury and installation for seasonal use. Multiple entries will be chosen as winning entries and will be constructed for public use during the 2017 Winnipeg Design Festival. During the festival, the organizers will schedule and facilitate The Bench Talks alongside the benches and the festival grounds. The talks will invite urban designers/planners and the public to discuss ‘street as public space’ and specific resonances that the installed entries bring to the topic.

Awards:- Multiple entries will be chosen as winning entries and will be constructed for public use during the 2017 Winnipeg Design Festival.

Deadline:- 23-08-2017
