The competition is open to all currently registered students in the Faculty of Architecture and is a required assignment for students in course LARC 7002
The competition carries total prize money of $3000 generously donated by Barkman Concrete Ltd as part of their Scholarship Fund for student in the Faculty / Department of Landscape Architecture.
The competition calls for preparation and drawing-up of designs for pre-cast concrete seating of dimensions chosen by the entrants and that could be used in external public space in a Prairie city - e.g. Winnipeg! The units are to be designed for production in Barkman's facilities and may include a combination of (an)other material(s) besides concrete. The designs can be one-off, stand alone items or can be designed as a suite of seating units.
Students are to submit in duplicate
scale drawings fitting within a 24 x 36 inch surface area and showing plan, section, and elevation drawings for their proposed unit(s) and how they are to be installed on site. The drawings must include fixing details for the other materials being used in the design and are to describe the anticipated method of fabrication of the unit.
