Call for entries to RA Summer Exhibition
Lend Lease, in partnership with the AJ, will once again award £10,000 to the best submission to the Architecture Room at the 2011 Royal Academy of Arts (RA) Summer Exhibition
In contrast to previous years, there is no theme for the 2011 Summer Exhibition. However Piers Gough of CZWG and Alan Stanton of Stanton Williams, who are exhibition co-coordinators for the Architecture Room, said they were ‘particularly interested in receiving submissions relating to Berlin’. The Selection and Hanging Committee includes Nicholas Grimshaw and Norman Foster.
The overall winner will receive a £10,000 Grand Award and there is also £5,000 on offer for the best submission by a first-time exhibitor - an award which has previously been won by architecture students.
Last year, the Grand Award went to sSteven Chilton from Marks Barfield Architects who exhibited his model Hyper Tower, and the first-time exhibitor prize was won by London practice 6A Architects, for its Mines Park Model: A New English Country House (pictured below).
