Register: SEP/30/2018, Submit: OCT/05/2018, Eligibility: Students registered in a spatial design (architecture, interior, landscape, urban) and/or an exhibition design programs; individually, teams with unlimited number of members, Fee: Free, Awards: Winner – total budget of up to $1,500 CAD (Canadian dollar) (about 1,150 USD)
Trans Plan is an international student design competition organized by A2G (Architecture Gallery at the Faculty of Architecture University of Manitoba, Canada). The competition is open to all students registered in a spatial design (architecture, interior, landscape, urban, and so on) and or an exhibition design programs. The challenge of Trans Plan 2018 is to design an immersive installation that evolves throughout the duration of the exhibition. The winning entry, selected by the jury, will be installed at A2G for public viewing for 50+/- days in the fall of 2018. Can space evolve through its contextual and environmental agency? Can we devise an atmospheric and/or spatial evolution? Can we stage evolutive conditions as the main experience of a space?
In relation to a ‘responsive’ or a ‘streaming/feeding’ conditions, an ‘evolutive’ condition may assume dimensions/dynamics of accumulation or aggregation; together with its transmogrifying nature, it can discuss a sense of commitment and responsibility. The challenge of the competition is to  devise an algorithmic substructure/system for evolutive space and experience and to  plan out the logistics of fabrication and installation at A2G.
The proposed set up (installation) is expected to be immersive and evolve over the duration of the exhibition, 50+/- days. The initial setup itself can be an immersive experience itself and or a form of discourse around the topic.
The proposal must be designed with the efficient and effective use of materials and fabrication/installation process in mind and all parts used in the proposal must be locally sourceable. A total budget of up to $1,500 CAD will be allocated as the project’s material budget, and basic woodworking and digital fabrication will be accessible at the faculty’s facility.
