The Rochester chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Rochester) is the professional organization for architects in the greater Rochester area. Next year will mark 100 years since the professional organization began as the Rochester Society of Architects in 1919.
The special centennial events seek to raise the visibility of architects, the professional firms, and the built environment in the Rochester region. We want to reach out to the community to help demonstrate how design matters in our everyday lives.
In that vein, we are proud to host this competition to design and construct a collection of temporary interactive spaces within the City Center of Rochester, NY.
The goal of this competition is to create a series of interactive follies that encourage public engagement and in doing so, highlight the importance of architecture. Participating teams are to build upon a plinth provided by AIA Rochester, in which the design should be evocative of the most easily relatable form of architecture in Western Culture – the gabled house.
