After a short pause—we’re pleased to announce a new partnership and a reimagining of the Deign Biennial. With the generous support of WS Development we are excited to announce the first iteration of Design Seaport.

In times of darkness, art delights, and design burns the brightest light. In its inaugural year, Design Seaport seeks to bring playful, exuberant, large-scale installations to life in Boston’s Seaport district; works that represent the moments of joy and hope that lift spirits, no matter the season or circumstance.

Design Seaport is open to emerging practices and individuals working in architecture, design, and the visual arts based in Massachusetts. Applicants must have received any most recent professional degree within the last fifteen years and must have a body of exemplary work completed as principals/partners of an emerging firm or independently.

Submission deadline: July 24, 2020
Winners will be notified by August 7, 2020
Stipend is based on number of participants, but will be $50,000 for design and installation. (i.e. if there are two chosen, each get 25K)

The program is presented by WS Development and OverUnder, with support from the Boston Society of Architects, the Mayor’s Office for New Urban Mechanics, and the Boston Art Commission.
