The Architectural Unconscious

All mediums accepted.

Title: "The Architectural Unconscious"
Deadline: April 29 Submissions Due by 5pm EST
Entry Fee: You may submit up to three pieces for a non-refundable entry fee of $20.
Possibly the most exquisite combination of "form meets function" exists around
us all. For civilizations the architecture that emerged has served a wealth of uses,
from the most utilitarian purposes to the most intricate historical records. However,
the vast impressiveness and monumental achievement of the architecture we
experience, typically distracts us from the efforts that lead to such an enormous
structure. "The Architectural Unconscious" is an exhibition that celebrates everything
architecture produces, yet overshadows in appreciation. In other words,
architecture yields sculptures, drawings, photographs, paintings, plans, detailed
models, and many other forms of art that demand our attention. Insightful
appreciations for these humble beginnings will undoubtedly provide a more clear
perspective for the significance of civilization's structures.
