Architecture Foundation launches floating cinema design competition

  • Comment

[PQQ’s should be returned by 26 June] The Architecture Foundation and UP Projects are seeking practices to work on a floating cinema project in east London

Launched in 2011 with an initial design by Studio Weaves, the project – which aims to ‘animate’ East London’s waterways – has resurfaced this year with a new ‘delight and playfulness’ theme.

A shortlist of four will receive £750 each to develop their proposals. The winning team will deliver the project up to RIBA stage F. Construction of the £54,000 will begin in October.

The vessel is planned to launch in June 2013 and unlike last year’s creation by Studio Weave the cinema will remain a permanent feature and attraction.
