SAN DIEGO – RFQ – Parking Plaza Lobby Stair

In RFQ on May 14, 2016 at 1:27 am

Artists and artist teams are invited to submit qualifications for the Parking Plaza Lobby Stair Public Art Opportunity. The new parking plaza is expected to be a 3-story building of approximately 1,000,000 square feet with 3,000 parking spaces. The Parking Plaza is anticipated to be a post-tensioned concrete structure and will be located on the current footprint of the Terminal 2 West parking lot.

The project is an opportunity for an artist or artist team to activate the exterior, terminal-facing sides of the plaza’s three lobby stairwells, which serve as pedestrian entry and exit points for the structure. The artwork should feature unique and memorable sculptural elements that create a visual screen in front of the stairwells, while still allowing for visibility, transparency, and ventilation. The sculptural treatment should have a light and airy quality to complement the openness of the lobby. While the three elements should clearly share a common theme or leitmotif, each should possess a distinctive character through differentiation of texture, pattern, material, technique, or effect.

The artist or artist team selected for this opportunity will collaborate closely with the Design Team throughout the design, construction, and installation process.

ELIGIBILITY: Open to professional artists living in California

BUDGET: Estimated Budget: $550,000

DEADLINE: June 2, 2016, 2PM PST

QUESTIONS: Lauren Lockhart, Art Program Manager,
