The Architecture Foundation and the Museum of London are delighted to be launching an open call to solicit portfolios from design teams interested in developing a temporary structure for the Museum of London that will help facilitate participatory discussion about the Museum's future development plans and the wider cultural hub in this part of London. The brief to designers will centre upon the creation of a flexible structure that can accommodate up to five people and can be used to actively engage and solicit responses from members of the public. It is envisaged that the structure should also help attract visitors to the Museum and make use of its exterior forecourt spaces. The winning design will be realised in time for the London Festival of Architecture 2014 in June and will remain in place until September 2014.
Designers are encouraged to express their interest in the project by submitting their portfolio by 10 February 2014. A shortlist of three design teams will then be selected to work up detailed design ideas.
Applications are now closed. Shortlisted Candidates have been notified and will be announced along with the winning team in April 2014.
