AIA Southern Indiana presents:

ART BY ARCHITECTS 2014 :
One Site, Infinite Solutions – Ideas Competition

Gallery Opening – Friday January 17th 4:30 – 8pm
Urban Living Center – 58 Adams Avenue

We asked artists, designers and architects the following question and received over 150 entries from all over the world. We will display their answers at this year’s Art by Architect’s show.

One Site, Infinite Solutions
Ideas Competition – Haynie’s Corner, Evansville IN

The goal of this competition is to explore the intrinsic differences between designers and how they approach creative challenges. We asked designers (students, interns, architects and artists) to collaborate with us to create designs for an urban lot in the downtown of Evansville at the corner of Adams and 2nd street. This lot is known as Haynie’s Corner and is historically significant and serves an important anchor of the Art District. We do not own this lot, and we were not seeking legitimate proposals for things to do with it – the site is just a representation of a common design problem in urban areas. Rather, by asking all of the designers to approach precisely the same problem using the same format, we seek to draw a contrast between the designs themselves.

The answers they came up with are creative, original and unique.
The designers could decide to keep the existing structure and modify it, or demolish the building and start with a blank slate.

Come and see Haynie’s Corner like you’ve never seen it before!
