2007 collab student design competition Brief: 1 of 2

event              collab will hold its Fifteenth annual student design competition at the philadelphia museum of art on
                   monday, november 12th, 2007. this year’s competition will be held in conjunction with the celebration
                   of collab’s new gallery in the museum’s Ruth and Raymond g. perelman building - the first gallery in
                   the museum’s history to be dedicated permanently to modern and contemporary design. the opening
                   exhibition, “designing modern: 1920 to the present,” takes a chronological look at the museum’s
                   collection of modern and contemporary decorative art. as always, the theme of the student design
                   competition is linked to collab’s largest annual event. this year, students are asked to consider the
                   scope of the modern design dialogue.



theme              controlling and managing content has always been a central activity of the human condition. today
                   more than ever, information mapping has become a powerful interdisciplinary strategy that links
                   ideas - locations - people - data - organizations - as well as physical and virtual environments. it
                   has become difficult to separate this activity from that which we call design. We can find mapping
                   incarnations in a myriad of forms around us.



challenge          students will design a “map” that will link associations between people, things, or events within the
                   context of the revolutionary ideas and trends in art, architecture and design that developed in the 20th
                   century and beyond. the map should communicate the student’s interpretation of the forces which
                   flowed into, through, and around modern design giving shape to its origins and output.



Judging criteria   1. creative concept (overall idea behind the submission)
                   2. conceptual execution (how well the submission translates the conceptual idea)
                   3. construction (craft of submission)
                   4. evidence of Research (how well submission incorporates historical understanding)



deliverables       1. one 24” x 36” full color, borderless, mounted presentation board which contains:
                      • a 150 word design statement that explains the research and overall idea behind the entry

                      • a final high-resolution product image (if the solution to the problem is an object)

                   2. 3d model (optional)
                   3. one cd containing:
                      • one 300dpi Jpeg at a final size of 12”x12” as shown on the mounted presentation board

                      • one microsoft Word document containing the 150 word design statement as shown on the

                        mounted presentation board
                   4. a completed registration sheet (see final page of this document) placed in a sealed envelope along
                   with the cd, securely taped to the back of the presentation board.


                   please note: each entry board must be void of any identifying characteristics representing the
                   entrant’s school or name. all entries must include all above stated components. incomplete entries
