PUBLIC ART PROJECT OPPORTUNITY: San Diego County Regional Airport Authority
Request for Qualifications (RFQ): Parking Plaza Public Art Opportunity:
Artists are invited to collaborate with the Authority’s design-build team to create an integral, visually dynamic, and experiential artwork within the new Parking Plaza. The Parking Plaza is expected to be a 3-story post-tensioned concrete structure of approximately 1,000,000 square feet with 3,000 parking spaces and will be located on the current footprint of the Terminal 2 East parking lot.
This opportunity will serve as the introductory Airport experience for passengers utilizing the Parking Plaza, and should therefore create a sense of place and support intuitive way-finding within the structure. The artwork should respond to and reflect the building’s smart technology, which senses vehicle occupancy and uses real-time data to simplify the user experience. This may be accomplished through the use of responsive or participatory features, by utilizing data generated from the structure to enhance interactive elements, or by integrating renewable energy devices into the artist’s design.
Eligibility: RFQ is open to all professional designers, artists and teams legally qualified to work in the US; artists must have successfully completed at least one large-scale permanent public art commission with a project budget of at least $500,000 within the past ten years. Additional requirements are listed in the RFQ.
