Design Competition

Friday, February 24th, 2012

National Capital Planning Commission / General Services Administration
(Washington DC)

Deadline: March 13, 2012

The National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC), in cooperation with the General Services Administration (GSA), is sponsoring a design competition for a new temporary outdoor commemorative installation in Washington, DC. The competition’s goal is to enhance a prominent but underutilized public space in the city’s monumental core while fostering a public dialogue regarding the nature of commemoration in the nation’s capital.

Artists and/or design professionals, working as individuals or teams, are invited to propose ideas for an innovative temporary commemorative work that embodies the commemorative theme selected for the competition — the precepts and positive impact of Earth Day, the world’s largest civic observance.

The proposed site for this temporary installation is the Ariel Rios Hemicycle, a grassy semi-circle along the west side of 12th Street NW between Pennsylvania and Constitution Avenues in Washington’s Federal Triangle.

The competition winner to be selected in summer 2012 may be contracted to design, fabricate, and install their proposed installation with a total budget between $200,000 to $300,000, resulting in a public display at the Hemicycle for a period of up to one year.

Interested artists/designers must submit information about themselves, their teams, and portfolios of accomplishment that establish their capabilities, as well as a preliminary vision statement for the commemorative installation in response to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) posted on the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) website by March 13, 2012.

An evaluation board consisting of representatives from NCPC, GSA, the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts and private sector professional peers in the fields of art, architecture, history of memorials, and urban planning will review the submissions and make a recommendation to the GSA Selection Authority on a short list of artist/design teams.

For full details on eligibility and submission requirements, please refer to the Request for Qualifications posted on the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) website.

Taoist, Buddhist and Hindu philosophy in the practice of contemporary Asian Art.
The philosophy of Qi (Chi) and Chakra metaphysics are important spiritual ideas
that permeate Asian culture. It is clear that many Asian philosophical ideas
have become an integral part of New Age American culture. The popularity of Tai
Chi and Yoga are clear examples of the increased interest in Asian
spirituality.  Many Asian artist create works of art whose themes, focus, symbols, iconography,
