British Film Institute, London

The British Film Institute (BFI) is seeking an architect to design its ambitious new Film Centre on London’s South Bank

The BFI had previously worked with Stirling Prize-winner David Chipperfield on proposals to build a facility on its Hungerford car park plot. However those plans (see below) were quietly shelved and the institute is now looking for a new design team to build a ‘national film and television centre’ – a project understood to be worth around £160 million.

The successful architect will help to select the rest of the design team, including civil and structural engineers, mechanical and electrical engineering consultants and other specialists.

A shortlist is expected to be unveiled in August with the winner appointed in November 2010.
