The residency program will provide the sculptor and installation artists with a studio, a monthly stipend and unlimited access to the dump area for materials. In addition to the time dedicated to the program, Arcega will also teach three classes at SF State and has recently debuted three pieces in the on-campus exhibit Hydarchy: Power, Globalization and the Sea.

ReSpace Competition – challenge

ReSpace Competition

PLACE. CULTURE. COMMUNITY.

The challenge: design a small, outdoor community gathering space which exhibits exemplary design using reuse materials.

This year the competition combines issues of program, culture and context to the challenge of designing with reuse materials. We are asking you to design a space that will allow Hope House (a non-profit outreach program for the inner-city of Wake Forest, NC) to continue growing by moving some of its programs outside.  This will solve their need for space and increase their connection to the neighborhood.

We selected “Porch” as the theme for our 2014 ReSpace competition because porches are a key element of the southern vernacular.  They are central to southern culture.  They are a primary place where neighbors gather, socialize and become a community.

Prizes

A total of $2,000 in awards will be presented to three winners. The Grand Prize winner’s design will be constructed on site overseen by Habitat for Humanity of Wake County and will receive $1,000 in prize money.
