Highlight Work of Young Architects
To help highlight the work of young architects and designers in
Atlanta, Function:, an integrated marketing agency that specializes
in reaching the building, architecture and design community, has
become a sponsor of the Emerging Voices 08 and 48 hour
Design Competition. The exhibitions are hosted by the Museum
of Design Atlanta (MODA) and presented by the Young Architects Forum
of Atlanta's AIA Chapter. The exhibitions opened at MODA on October
16 and run through mid- December.
"We are excited to be a part of these exhibitions and to have
the opportunity to help Atlanta's young architects and designers
present their work to the public," says Dana Castle, principal
and director of strategy for Function:. "For years, Function:
has worked closely with architects and designers throughout North
America to gain insight into their views of the industry, which
helps us provide clients with a deeper understanding of these critical
influencer groups. Our sponsorship of the Emerging Voices 08
and 48 House Design Competition is another way for us
to show our support for the architectural community and stay connected
with our audience."
Emerging Voices is an annual competition that highlights
the work of young architects and designers throughout Atlanta. Established
by Atlanta's Young Architect's Forum (YAF:ATL) and the AIA Atlanta
Chapter, Emerging Voices provides a public forum for winning
entrants to exhibit their work and draw attention to architectural
practices in the area that might not otherwise be recognized by
the architectural community. This year's winners are ai3, Houser
Walker Architecture and Ed Akins II.
The 48 Hour Design Competition, the first event of its kind,
will become an annual tradition. Modeled after the "charette"-a
pre-1900 exercise at the Ecoloe des Beaux in France-the competition
will test the design ability of Atlanta's students, designers, and
architects (up to 10 years of licensure) to respond in a brief period
of time to pertinent design issues facing the city. All entries
are being exhibited in the gallery at MODA in conjunction with the
Emerging Voices 08 exhibition.
