The Architecture Foundation and the London International Festival of Theatre have revealed these four shortlisted schemes for a temporary 'parliament' to be built on London's South Bank in 2008.
The projects, which are anonymous, respond to the brief for a space that can be used as a meeting place and a performance space.
The competition for the design and fit-out of the £400,000 project was open to (but not limited to) architects, designers, artists, product designers and portable-space designers.
Design teams were invited to suggest inspiring and innovative yet realistic designs for this temporary and flexible structure.
The winner of the competition will be decided by the public. To see more information and vote, visit www.liftfest.org.ukby Ed Dorrell
