Art Fund Pavilion

The Architecture Foundation is delighted to announce that The Art Fund Pavilion 2009 is to be designed by Tina Manis Associates. The response to this architecture competition, run by Tent London and The Lightbox, and advised by the AF, was astonishing, both in the variety of entries and their creativity.

As a New York based practice, the winner also reflects the international reach of the applications that came from 52 countries. It was agreed by the judges that Tina Manis Associates’ bold yet elegant proposal best accommodates the intended use of the pavilion as a gallery and is most sensitive to The Lightbox’s site, which will be its home each summer.

More information about the design and responses from the jury can be seen here.
