The South Fourth Street Association is announcing a design competition to create a new entrance to Fountain Court (1430 1/2 South Fourth Street). This competition will be a two-stage process. The first phase will be submittal of a designer’s qualifications. Then, from this submittal, a short-list of designers will be considered. Up to three will be selected to prepare a concept design for the Fountain Court entrance. These participants will be provided $500 each, with the winning designer receiving an additional $500 for the selected proposal.
An important component of this competition will be to incorporate themes and elements from the historic Southern Exposition, which occurred in this district from 1883 to 1887.
An informational meeting on the competition will be held on Monday, August 20at 7:30 p.m. at the Conrad Caldwell House, 1402 St. James Court. Further information can be found on the Facebook page “Fountain Court Design Competition” and by emailing FountainCourtCompetition@gmail.com.
