Request for Proposals - DesCours, 2010

Presented by AIA New Orleans

DesCours is a free, public, week-long architecture and art event now in its fourth year, held the second week of December in New Orleans. DesCours invites any architect, designer, or artist engaged in contemporary work that focuses on new technologies and materials to apply.

The 2007 through 2009 presentations of DesCours gave AIA New Orleans the opportunity to exhibit the works of nearly 100 architects, designers and musicians.  This event has provided a platform for experimentation in new materials, technologies and ways of making in the architecture field.  Participants have gone on to win international awards and recognition for their installation work in DesCours.  DesCours has been favorably received by critics and media and enticed large audiences of 29,000 on-site visitors over the course of three years.
