A few notes about the model competition tomorrow.
The competition will be held tomorrow afternoon, in the lower level of Crown Hall. Starting at 1:30pm, you will be asked to place your models and pin up your drawings in the locations indicated on the attached document – S14_ARCH 306_Model Competition pin up assignment+. This document assigns each of you a number (#) (no personal markings or names should occur on your boards as to keep the competition anonymous). The locations for each number are also noted in the document, and locations will be marked with numbers on post it notes designating the locations for hanging. Instructions and rules for setting up are simple. Please pin up or tape up your drawings directly below the Post-it, leaving the Post-it with your designated number exposed. Models should be placed directly below your drawings, on bases where possible. Please begin to collect model bases sooner rather than later. There likely are not enough model bases in Crown Hall for all 120 of us. If not model bases are available, please place your models on the ground. The jurors will understand. Please use the proper tape and adhesive dots to pin up. We will be taping up over the top of the glass windows into the library, so please do so respectfully as to not disturb people working in the library.
At 2:30, please convene in lower core. The competition will be juried by several guest jurors beginning with introductions at that time. The jurors will be selecting a shortlist of projects for final review (red dot), and you will be asked to participate by awarding winners in three categories for Best Project (green dot), Best Model(blue dot) and Best Drawing/Rendering (yellow dot).
At 3:30-3:45 pm, all projects should be taken down from their locations, and those projects with red dots should re-hang your projects and re-place your models in lower core. Please remember to also bring your # designation with you so we have record of which projects belong to who. All of us will reconvene in lower core at 4:15pm, along with the jurors, for final reviewing and awarding of final winners.
Space is tight and models are large, so please work together to get everything on display.
The pin up #’s and locations will be displayed on the doorways of our studios and in Lower Core tomorrow afternoon around 1pm. If by mistake your name does not appear on this roster, please either contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or see me tomorrow for a spot.
After introductions at 2:30, please see your studio professor for the stickers you will use to select the ‘audience’ awards. You will receive three stickers – a green, a blue and a yellow, and you will be asked to vote for your favorite Project (green dot), Model (blue dot) and Presentation (yellow dot), by placing your stickers clearly on or adjacent to your selections.
After the winners have been announced, it is your responsibility to carefully remove your presentation and models from their displayed locations and return the lower level of Crown Hall back as we found it.
Good luck on the home stretch and can’t wait to see the work tomorrow!
