Everything Else, Projects

UIC answered a call for an open competition for a temporary outdoor gallery space (TOGS), to be part of the annual Art City Austin event. UIC’s entry called for a lightweight translucent fabric covered ‘roof’ that is supported on a series of adjustable pipe columns that are integrated into a set of adjustable seats and display devices. UIC further proposed that this canopy and the annual event be used as the catalyst for the redevelopment of the streets that host the event into a new hybrid space that can easily be converted to host a variety of activities, while still accommodating traffic on a day-to-day basis.
