Tent London competition seeks 'unrecognised architects'

This year’s Tent London event – part of London Design Festival – is seeking as-yet ‘unrecognised architects’ to enter its 2008 ‘fast-architecture competition’.

The Workspace Group Urbantine Project is calling for the design of a 6 x 5 x 4m structure that can be built in 48 hours and disassembled in 24. Innovative material and creative assembly concepts, such as modularity and pre-assembly, will be valued.

Last year’s winner, Alex Haw’s ‘Work/Space/Ply/Time’ (design pictured), was erected without the use of rivets or glue – the basis of the design being a series of interlocking panels.

The winning architect will receive a £10,000 budget to build their design and exhibit it at Tent London at the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane during the London Design Festival.

For full details of the competition visit: The deadline is 10th June.
