House of MusesFuture Visions for the Museum of London
The Architecture Foundation is delighted to be working with the Museum of London to commission a design team to develop a temporary structure that will help facilitate participatory discussion about future development plans for the Museum of London and the wider cultural hub in this part of London. The structure, which will be located outside the Museum of London’s main entrance, should be able to accommodate individuals and small groups at any one time and allow them to feedback on proposed visions for the Museum and its future. 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. The legacy of the structure will also be incorporated into the brief and designers will be asked to put forward suggestions for how the structure could have an afterlife.
This competition will run as follows:
January: Open Call launched for interested parties to submit porfolios for consideration by 10 February 2014
February: A shortlist is selected to work up design proposals for the structure
March: A winner is selected by jury
June: The winning structure is realised and launched during London Festival of Architecture 2014
Applications are now closed. Shortlisted Candidates have been notified and will be announced along with the winning team in April 2014.
