Gravity Defiance

The idea of gravity defiance is open to interpretation but can be seen as a final frontier in our elemental understanding of the physical universe, and an implicit goal in (almost) all constructions.

Eligibility All

M&A, an experimental architecture and landscape research center, is calling for proposals for its next installation. The unique outdoor exhibit space in Los Angeles is dedicated to pushing new and underused ideas for art, landscape and architecture into view. We encourage the use of sustainable resources, renewable energy and smart technologies. The successful proposal will expand the application of materials beyond what typical commercial and residential project limits allow towards an inspiring structural implant that challenges and welcomes anyone.
We are looking for projects that have a cradle-to-cradle design approach, incorporate new technologies, materials or techniques - and will benefit the artist's research into the durability of their materials and processes by providing a valuable extended but temporary duration in the elements and within the public's grasp.
