The Center for Architecture and Design wants to see your best examples of good design and bad design in Columbus. The local organization has put out a public call for submissions for their Juxtapose campaign, where participants are tasked with finding two types of similar objects — buildings, spaces, products, etc — and photographing both of them to provide a compare-and-contrast example of good and bad design elements.

Individuals can submit as many Juxtaposes as they want on the Center’s website through the end of September, and submissions will be curated into a pop-up exhibition in October.

“It’s very similar to the ArChallenge contest, in that it’s a digital experience that engages the public,” explained Sarah Bacha, who serves on the Board of Directors at The Center. “In this case, we’re engaging the community in a discussion about what is good design by having them take a look at the designed world around them.”

For more information, and to submit your entries, visit www.columbuscfad.org/juxtapose/.

Columbus Underground is celebrating Architecture and Design Week from September 21 through September 27, where we take a look at all things related to designing the future of our city. This week is brought to you with support from our friends at Continental Office and Schooley Caldwell Associates.
