The ACADIA 2011 Design + Fabrication Competition award-winning jury (plus a video)

The ACADIA 2011 Design + Fabrication Competition award-winning jury (plus a video)

The Brooklyn-based design and fabrication studio, FLATCUT_, in conjunction with the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (“ACADIA”), are pleased to announce this year’s award-winning jurors for The ACADIA 2011 Design + Fabrication Competition. The international competition asks designers to “push the boundaries of materials, minds, and machine” by exploring emergent modes of computational design. The competition focuses on unique material combinations and new fabrication techniques in creating forms in three categories: Furniture, Lighting and Partition. Winners will get the opportunity to actually fabricate their proposals this summer at FLATCUT_’s incredible 100,000sf warehouse.

So who will be deciding which schemes get fabricated and put on exhibition at the 2011 ACADIA conference? Confirmed jurors include Bjarke Ingels of BIG, Tom Wiscombe of Emergent, Tod Williams of TWBTA, Dror Benshetrit of Studio Dror recently shortlisted for the Buckminster Fuller Prize and FLATCUT_ Founder Tomer Ben-Gal.

FLATCUT_ is also pleased to release a new FABrication VIDEO by Alex Bergman & Serban Ionescu that artfully orchestrates FLATCUT_’s 100+ machines – from Trumpf Trumatics to robotic welders. (oooooooohhhh) Watch it to get a sense of what FLATCUT_ (and you) can do! The international call for submissions has already attracted competitors from Los Angeles to India, and the submission deadline has been extended to June 15 to accommodate demand.

Winners will be announced in July. The Jury will choose 1 winning design from each category from which FLATCUT_ will produce exhibition-quality prototypes of each to be put on display in Calgary. Winners also win $1000, free entry to the conference, a spot on the Integrated Materialities Panel at ACADIA 2011.
