Sprocket is hosting an open competition to engage the DESIGN community in a public forum. The specific goal is to create a discussion of innovative concepts for designing, occupying and programming public space. The competition explores the concepts of community and sustainability through the union of an innovative programming, the exchange of goods and service, and PUBLIC ART.
The competition site is a small vacant lot [25'X 126']in the historic Highland Square district of the West Highland neighborhood near 32nd and Lowell in Denver, Colorado. The competition will be open to any interested party, including Architects, Artists, Students, Designers, etc... The program focuses on creating a viable concept for programming a ‘public space’ and entrants are encouraged to go beyond the idea of food and produce. The entrants are asked to expand the historical notion of a ‘farmer’s market’ to things such as art display, community venues, music venue, crafts, etc. The concepts should focus on activating the space with the flexibility to provide year round programming. In addition, each entrant shall create a viable identity for community outreach.
