WINDOW design-build competition from the AIA Philadelphia Associates is coming on August 13th!
The Charette will include an expert panel and the store owners of Save-Some-Green on 20th and Chestnut Streets.

The winning design will be chosen that evening.

Bring all the tools you need to create your design and sell it! This is a low budget, HIGH IMPACT design solution competition.

We would love for you all to participate. Please share with others you think might be interested to get their name out there and show off their design skills.

The Charette -August 13 will bring together local designers, a panel of consultants, and participating store owners to the Center for Architecture (1218 Arch Street) for a Charette to work your magic. The Charette will include introductions, two rounds of design and consulting, feedback in between, and the announcement of the design winners within three hours. At the Charette, individual and team designers will be introduced to all the store owners. Each store owner will have up to five (5) minutes to introduce and share their business philosophy and mission, merchandise, and audience. After these introductions, business owners will be asked to share their goal, objective, or need for a designed window display. Followed by a brief Q&A for you to ask any questions before the first design segment (approximately 45-60 minutes). During this segment you are allowed to ask questions to the panel, who have had experience in window display design. At the end of the segment will be the first pin-up, and you will be given feedback before returning to the second segment (approximately 20-30 minutes). Window design(s) will be selected at the conclusion of the event. Designers will be asked to indicate a budget and list of materials necessary to complete the window design for the final pin-up.

Post-Charette | 1-2 Weeks After Charette

After the winning design(s) are selected, the designer(s) will have 1 week to collect all materials needed for the construction of their design, and coordinate with the business owner when construction can take place at the business location. The following week will be the unveiling of the window.

See you at the Center for Architecture on August 13th at 6:00pm!
