As we’ve been touting for the past couple weeks, GE Garages is on its way to New York City, looking to give $20,000 to a person or firm who designs and builds its storefront installation. The “mobile manufacturing lab” will be housed at the Chelsea-based retail space, STORY. The installation will greet visitors when the GE pop-up store opens on October 5th. Learn more!
The end is near! Entries for the GE Garages Making Things Competition are due this Thursday, September 20, with the winner being announced on September 24. In keeping with the store’s theme, designs must incorporate some form of rapid prototyping, be it 3D printing, milling, or even using an injection molder. The fabrication will start immediately thereafter and continue until the construction deadline, October 4.
The winner will not only receive a highly publicized commission, but will also get $20,000 to make it happen. For more on the GE Making Things Competition, including registration, design requirements, and jury info, head over to the competition page.
Submissions are free and open to all. We can’t wait to see all of the submissions!
