The aim of the “Showing” competition is to develop a design proposal for the museum typology, intended as a place of display for objects and/or concepts of interest. It is asked to the participants to create innovative and unconventional projects on this theme, questioning the very basis of the notion of museums. Many architecture and design projects have already proposed new ways to experience the museum, establishing the architecture of the museum itself as a piece of art and object of display, or defining new ways of interaction and experience with the public. In addition, numerous initiatives experimented on the social and educational role of the exhibition space, innovating content, as well as the way it is produced and selected. With similar creative attitude the participants are urged to create an artefact, merging considerable programmatic innovation and valuable design tools. The proposal can be a device, a piece of furniture, an interior design project, a pavilion, a building or a urban plan. Scale of intervention, program dimensions and location are not given and they can be arranged by the participants to better suit their project.

3D Hubs Student Grant 2017
We’re looking for inventors, problem solvers and creative talents in STEAM subjects that push the boundaries of 3D printing.
The Grant is offered in three fields; engineering, product design and architecture, to students that can showcase the Best Use of 3D Printin in the specified academic fields. The three successful applicants will receive:
● $500 cash
● An honourable mention from Brian Garret (3D Hubs co-founder) on Linkedin
● A professional photoshoot of their project for their portfolio
Brian Garret (3D Hubs co-founder) explains the importance of students and supporting STEAM education; “Students are the engineers and designers of the future. With this Grant, as well as our existing student program providing 25% off, we aim to give students a strong foundation in digital manufacturing early on to give them a competitive edge in their future careers.”
Great examples of 3D printing done by students are Eindhoven’s Mark Thielen who’s creating a new future of medical training, Delft’s Jonas Holtermann driving innovation for formula student, or the team from the University of Colorado Boulder making new ways for blind children to read.
For more inspiration on student projects, follow our Instagram. Throughout the months of April, May and June we’ll be showcasing the best submissions.
Students can apply on this page; 3D Hubs Student Grant 2017. Applications close on June 30th, and awardees will be announced on July 15th.
