Hurry up and submit your DIY design solution for inclusion into the biggest architecture show in the world.
Titled "Spontaneous Interventions: Design Actions for the Common Good," the American entry to this year's biennale focuses solely on designers who have taken solution-building into their own hands. Included projects, the planners say, "will frame an archive of compelling, actionable strategies, ranging from urban farms to guerilla bike lanes, temporary architecture to poster campaigns, urban navigation apps to crowdsourced city planning."
If you're a designer, be excited for two reasons: 1. You can submit your project for possible inclusion in Spontaneous Interventions here, and 2. This means good, relevant design operating outside above strict regulation is beginning to earn serious respect. Now for our politicians to listen.
