motivation is a bitch.

Ya ya, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I have a heap of links and images starred on my gmail intended to turn into a post. Hopefully I will catch up on my posts in the next two weeks.

For now, check out www.spontaneousarchitecture.net

from the website:

How It Works:


Spontaneous Architecture:

Immediate and participatory work within the architecture and design community.

The Competition:
Monthly image submission contest judged by a jury of peer participants. Entry images are quick and dirty responses to current architectural and urban questions.

The Winner:
The winner is determined through the voting of each month’s participants. No entrant may vote for their own submission. The winner receives a monetary prize: half of the entry fee proceeds collected for that month. In the case of multiple winners, the prize will be split equally among the winners. (Please read the Transparency page for more information on entry fee proceeds.) Winners are also featured on the Spontaneous Architecture website. Winners must provide original, high-resolution image files upon request.

The Discussion:
A public discussion of the topic and submitted images will be hosted by RAPID RESPONSE at Studio-X. Participants are encouraged to attend RAPID RESPONSE on the last Tuesday of every month. (Studio-X, 180 Varick Street Suite 1610, New York City)

The Monthly Timeline:
(Day 1) Previous Month’s Winner announced / New Competition Brief released on the 1st of every month.
(Day 15) Image Submissions due by 11:59PM EST on the 15th of every month.
(Day 16) Voting begins at 12:01AM EST on the 16th of every month.
(Day 20) Voting ends at 11:59PM EST on the 20th of every month.
* Monthly public discussion of the competition on the last Tuesday of every month. Hosted by RAPID RESPONSE at Studio-X. (Studio-X, 180 Varick Street Suite 1610, New York City)

Image Guidelines:
(1) One image. 8.5 inches by 11 inches. Landscape oriented. TIFF format at 300dpi.
(2) Images must be anonymous (containing no identification of the entrant in the image).
(3) Images may (but are not required to) contain up to 100 words of text.
