REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS: Design and build an innovative, modular, multi-purpose platform for Philadelphia’s City Hall Courtyard

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, January 15, 2017

Deadline for Qualifications Submission: January 13, 2017, 5:00 PM EST
The Mayor’s Fund for Philadelphia seeks qualifications from experienced local artisans, architects, designers, and makers who are interested in the design and fabrication of a modular, multi-purpose outdoor furniture element to be used in City Hall Courtyard, beginning in June 2017. The feature will be designed for outdoor use to support current and new programs and activities, last for a minimum of two years, and call attention to the historic relationship the site of City Hall has to water in Philadelphia.

This RFQ is the first of a two-phase process to select a team to design and fabricate the platform. The second phase will be a request for proposals (RFP) from a small number of teams (three to five) selected from the pool of those who submitted qualifications. The RFP phase will immediately follow the RFQ phase and will include a nominal stipend for the teams asked to submit proposals.

In my years as a visual artist I have chosen symbolic forms that are both universal and personal to express the idea of “time.” Often I use nests, eggs, marine creatures, and one-celled organisms. They are symbols for natural phenomenas that manifest this notion of time.
