The designs shall be for a temporary and freestanding installation that responds to the theme of “Active Streets.” It will start at the CFA on Parking Day (September 20, 2014) and last through Design Week Portland and the month of October. Utilizing the designguidelines of Portland’s Street Seats (see section E below) the project will be a model for future street seat designs that address public space activation. The design shall provide a place for people to sit/gather/interact during Design Week Portland events.
Alberta Main Street may offer to adopt the installations and reinstall them along AlbertaStreet upon completion of the program. This is still in the early planning phases and we will update teams as we find out more information. If this fails to materialize, program organizers ask that the teams with selected designs find a life for the installations after they need to be removed. This can include reinstalling them outside their studios, selling them to local businesses or, preferably, donated to a nonprofit. Either way, the designshould be easily disassembled and moved.
