The Irish Architecture Foundation launched a design competition in partnership with NCAD and sponsored by Plus Print. Teams from art, architecture, graphic design and curating were invited to develop a prototype archizine during an 8-week period. The winning prototype will go into production. This in-kind sponsorship prize is valued at approximately €1,000.
The purpose of the competition was to enhance the volume of architectural discourse, to critically engage a common ground and popular culture of publishing within architecture. The subject matter and content had to be related to architecture, which could include research, spatial practice, art, built environment, social, urban, political and related issues.
The competition was open to all, for example: Architects, Designers, Urbanists, Graduates, Students, Artists, Photographers, Curators, Editors, Writers, etc… anyone interested in discussing the buildings and spaces we inhabit. Submissions can come from one person or a team of people.
The Deadline for submissions was 12 noon on Monday 7th January.
