GE Garages are a series of pop-up open workshops launched by GE aiming to serve as an advanced manufacturing lab for technologists, entrepreneurs and everyday people.
The first GE Garages was launched at SXSW Interactive(an emerging technology gathering in Austin, Texas) on Mar.8. After SXSW Interactive, GE Garages will travel to other cities. The next stop will be in New York!
GE is partnering with STORY, a Chelsea based 2,000 sq ft retail space which operates with the "point of view of a magazine, changes like a gallery, and sells things like a store", for its upcoming October issue: MAKING THINGS.
Making Things is GE Garages' new competition for finding an architect/design to design and produce a spatially stunning window installation using rapid prototyping technology for the new GE Garages pop-up store. This store will be housed temporarily in New York City's Chelsea-based retailer STORY. The opening date of the store is October 5. Entries are due September 20, and the winner will be announced on September 24.
In keeping with the project theme, the designs must incorporate some form of rapid prototyping, like 3D printing, milling, or even using an injection molder. The fabrication will start immediately thereafter and continue up until the installation deadline, October 4. Not only will the winner receive a highly-publicized commission, but will get $20,000 to make it happen. Submissions are free and open to all. That's a little less than a month from now, meaning you've got to act fast!
