Design and Build Competition: 2024

The Museum of Outdoor Arts (MOA) seeks conceptual design proposals for its Design and Build Competition: 2024 edition, from art, architecture, landscape architecture, design and other creatively focused USA based collegiate students, teams, and/or classes.

This year’s theme is “Land Art: Celestial Architecture” and submissions should address the challenge of designing a land art / architectural installation that is informed by a celestial body or bodies (planets, galaxies, stars, comets, meteors etc.). The design should utilize architecture, landscape architecture, and/or sculpture/installation as a solution while considering environmental impact and sustainability in use of materials. Furthermore, the design should relate to the selected site in some way and primarily utilize materials native to the selected location. Contestants’ designs will need to respond with their conceptual project
under the premise that the structure will be utilized by the general public in a publicly accessible setting. The structure can be designed as a temporary or permanent installation.

Entries will be scored based on the following criteria:

  • Originality
  • Artistic/creative expression
  • Professionalism
  • Addressing the challenge
  • Technical proficiency
  • Safety

Eligibility:

  • The competition is open to any undergraduate or graduate student currently enrolled in any US university (recent graduates are eligible to enter for up to one year post graduation).
  • Students should be studying in the field of art, architecture, landscape architecture, design, engineering, and/or other similar programs. Entries can be submitted by individuals, teams, or as classes.
