The jury selected a short list

On May 11, 2016, a jury of five experts in the fields of arts, engineering and public spaces, deliberated together under the excellent guidance of Sally Truss, as Chair, and Michelle, the representative of the City of Calgary Parks Dept.

Nulli Identity Solution Architects provided the boardroom meeting space, Sunnyside Natural Market and Sidewalk Citizen Bakery lunch for the hard working jurors (who worked through lunchtime). Water for Riley is so grateful for all the contributions of time, space, goods, and services.

Sally Truss, Chair, facilitated jury deliberations through the day.

The result is that three student designs are short listed. The jury’s decision for the short list was based on criteria such as accessibility of design and overall esthetics. Because the designers were students, the experienced jury members made excellent comments on each of the short listed designs.

Those three designs will go for technical review. The professionals at IBI Group will report on how feasible, durable, functional, affordable, and conforming to best industry standards the designs are. That report will be available sometime this summer, depending on the complexity of the review.

The short list will be announced at a special free festival on 18 June, at 10:30 AM. Join us and 20 local artists on Neighbour Day at our sponsor Framed on Fifth. 1207 5th Ave NW, between 10 AM and 5 PM.Art for the Artist in You

 

 

After we have the IBI Group report to guide the jury in its final deliberation and decision, the jury will select the one design to be constructed. We won’t have a date for the final jury meeting until we receive the IBI Group report.
