GRUPPE wins Museum of London pavilion contest
Zurich and London-based artist and architect collective GRUPPE has won the contest to design a temporary pavilion outside The Museum of London
The emerging practice saw off young London-based outfit Neon and a collaboration between FAT-founder Sam Jacob and artist Pablo Bronstein to win the House of Muses competition.
Organised by the Architecture Foundation, the international contest called for designs for a temporary structure where the public can share thoughts about, and help shape, the future transformation of the museum.
The winning pavilion, which is set to open during the 2014 London Festival of Architecture, was inspired by historic architectural fragments found around the City of London.
GRUPPE, whose founders teach alongside Tom Emerson at ETH Zurich, was chosen by a jury made up of director of John McAslan + Partners and 2012 Emerging Woman Architect of the Year, Hannah Lawson, director of architecture, design and fashion at the British Council Vicky Richardson, and Guardian architecture critic Oliver Wainwright.
