DESIGN ARCHITECT
SELECTION PROCESS

1

REDESIGNING THE DESIGN COMPETITION

  

The Design Architect Selection Process commenced in November  2022, when Transform 1012 held a virtual event “Redesigning the Design Competition” with the goal of crowdsourcing community knowledge to curate a more equitable process in selecting a design team. The results of this forum and continued conversations have led to this unique and deliberate next phase. Read a summary of the convening HERE.

SUBMISSION OF STATEMENT OF VALUES AND COMMITMENTS

  

In lieu of a typical RFQ (Request for Qualifications), Transform 1012 requests that Design Architect candidates submit a two-page “Statement of Values and Commitments” expressing how their work aligns with Transform 1012’s mission and their relationship and commitment to reparative justice and the communities served by The Fred Rouse Center for Arts and Community Healing. Transform 1012 is interested in a design architect’s thoughts about spacial justice, redistribution of resources, and community healing and the ways in which these commitments have impacted their work thus far. The organization seeks both professional and creative talent, as well as an alignment of values.

SHORTLIST SELECTION AND ANNOUNCEMENT:

  

We received 27 responses, with a wide range of local, national, and international respondents. Transform 1012 and its partners will gather and consider the responses, compiling the submittals for review by the selection committee. The committee will then formulate a short list with the design architect selections for the next phase of the process. Transform 1012 will notify all respondents of their placement/non-placement on the shortlist in September 22, 2023.

Residency and Design Concept Development: From October 15 to 18, 2023, up to three selected design architects will visit Fort Worth for a full four days of conversations and meetings with stakeholders, site visits and community engagement sessions, allowing them to become familiar with the city. Their time in Fort Worth will result in a design concept that will be presented in a public forum and later displayed in an exhibition format online and in the community. Over the course of four weeks, and with input from community members, these proposals will be reviewed for the final selection.
