Brief Description

The City of Minneapolis invites experienced artists to apply to design patterning for portions of the birdsafe glass frit for the New Public Service Building. This two-phase selection process begins with submitting qualifications. Three finalists will be selected and receive a stipend to submit preliminary designs. The building will be at 501 Fourth Ave. S. and colocate City employees and services currently in several sites throughout downtown Minneapolis and serve the City’s broad range of constituents. The design team for the Consolidated Office building includes the Minneapolis firm MSR (Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle) working in partnership with the international firm Henning Larsen. This is the second of multiple calls for artists for the New Public Service Building. Future calls could include narrative murals, luminous ceilings, drinking fountains, a handrail and media works.
