OPEN CALL XS ARCAM MARKET #2: TEXTILE ARCHITECTURE
XS ARCHITECTURE and ARCAM call architects to contribute distinctive and innovative products, plans and prototypes for the second XS ARCAM MARKET that will focus on TEXTILE ARCHITECTURE. Where architecture is usually heavy, solid and immovable, with TEXTILE ARCHITECTURE we pay attention to another type of architecture – one that is light, soft and movable.
Contributions for TEXTILE ARCHITECTURE can be very diverse: from wearable’s like clothes, scarves, bags, table cloths and wallpaper, to textile constructions like tents and shelters. The 20 most interesting contributions will be exhibited in October 2014 at the XS ARCAM MARKET #2. The 5 most promising and marketable exhibits will be included in the XS ARCHITECTURE collections and/or ARCAM GALLERY.
XS ARCHITECTURE and ARCAM request contributions for TEXTILE ARCHITECTURE in the form of a 5MB PDF which should give a strong visual indication of the object and how it has been designed/ made. We also request an explanatory text of max. 500 words to support the application. Please send your entries and any questions you have to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to your entries!
