Competition: Boundaries installation, RIBA gallery

Periscopic Pavilion by Max Dewdney Architects
  • Comment

The RIBA has launched a contest to design a £22,000 temporary installation at its central London gallery space

Open to RIBA members, chartered practices and architecture students, the competition seeks innovative proposals that respond to this year’s London Festival of Architecture (LFA) theme of ‘Boundaries’.

The winning team, to be announced in April, will receive a £3,000 fee along with travel expenses to deliver their proposal inside RIBA’s 66 Portland Place headquarters in time for the opening of festival in June.

RIBA head of exhibitions and interpretation Marie Bak Mortensen said: ‘I’m delighted to present this unique opportunity to architects.

‘Following in the footsteps of Assemble, Aberrant Architecture and Apparata, the Architecture Gallery at RIBA has proven a place for experimental exhibition-making and a platform for engaging a wide range of audiences with architecture. Knowing the ingenuity of architects, I look forward to receiving strong proposals to continue this trajectory.’

The RIBA opened the £900,000 architecture gallery – designed by Carmody Groarke with Julian Harrap – inside its 1934 London headquarters five years ago. Landmark exhibitions have included the Brutalist Playground by Assemble and the Periscopic Pavilion by Max Dewdney Architects (pictured).

Applications for the latest commission must include a team description, 400-word project description, up to three pages of proposals and five images of relevant previous work. Schemes will be judged on their ‘artistic excellence’, curatorial narrative, feasibility, and use of sustainable materials and methods.

The deadline for applications is 5pm, 5 April.
