Unbridled is a fine art exhibition conceived by architects exploring their artistic side.

Architects are artists. Yet it is so rare to be able to fully express these ideas freely, outside the constraints of the client’s needs, building codes, costs, zoning…gravity. This is the chance to set your artistic nature free, and we want to help give this a voice!

This open call is directed at architects who want to present their inner imagination without holds barred!

Submitted artworks can vary in scope from simple to complex, and capture diverse forms, shapes and sizes; perhaps incorporating unexplored concepts, materials, patterns and strange connections. These conceivably unbuildable visualizations act as vehicles to develop our ideas of the future, or simply inspire our imagination.  The art must be architectural in nature, no matter how bizarre or removed from the laws of physics or reality and represent a habitable structure of some kind. Let your imagination go!

Open to all media types: paintings, 3D models, sketches, drawings, fly-throughs, animations, sculptural artworks, etc. This is a fine art gallery, so works should be conceived of with care and inspiration.    

Participating architects are strongly encouraged to explore all types of themes and proposals, including those for impractical structures and buildings, unexplored urban concepts, fantastical transportation alternatives and unconventional landscape proposals. Our 12,000 square foot gallery with 20' ceilings welcomes submissions for large works and installations.
