Title: CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: WORKING TITLE:REDESIGN




CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: WORKING TITLE:REDESIGN


 

The use of particular design elements within built environments, both private and public, interior and exterior, have the power to modify our attentions and control human behaviour.
 
Whether they are corporate boardrooms, over illuminated mega stores, government service buildings, fitness centres…, intentional decisions are made in order to summon very particular and controlled reactions from the users.
 
With this call for submissions we are interested in exploring the intentional use of design elements found within built environments such as, spaces of leisure, work environments, sites of power and consumption, public spaces……. How are these elements utilized to affect the psychology of the user? By using these particular design elements, what are some of the desired outcomes in human responses? How can existing spaces be re-designed or what new spaces can be created?  
 
As always, TFG encourages artists, architects designers and activists to apply. We will accept proposals in all forms of media.
 
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS APRIL 1, 2007
 
Proposals can be sent via post to:
660 Queen Street East
Toronto ON m4m 1g5
 
Or by email to:
