Brick Bay Sculpture Trust invites proposals for large-scale projects and installations that explore contemporary interpretations of the architectural folly, a design build project leading to a two year exhibition at Brick Bay.
The object is to support young and emerging New Zealand architects or students in an accredited New Zealand architecture programme, to explore the intersections between architecture and sculpture, and the increasing overlaps in references, concepts, and techniques between the two disciplines.
Award and Exhibition:
One conceptual project will be selected as the paramount winner.
The successful recipient will receive an overall $30,000 grant towards realising the proposed project. This grant consists of three separate components:
1. $15,000 cash from Resene to be applied towards the project plus Resene paint in addition to this for the build supplied by New Zealand's leading paint and coatings company.
2. $10,000 of building supplies and services for Fletcher Building.
3. A non cash grant of up to $5,000 of value for labour from Brick Bay Sculpture Trust.
The finished project will be installed and exhibited on the Brick Bay Sculpture Trail beginning early March 2018 for a period of twenty four months.
The project will be documented by one of New Zealand's leading architectural photographer's, Samuel Hartnett. AGM publishing will publish the Brick Bay Folly in Architectural New Zealand, Architecture Now and Urbis.
