The RIBA has launched a contest to design its flagship £10,000 lounge, bookshop and meeting space at next year’s Ecobuild convention

Open to UK-based RIBA chartered practices and chartered members, the competition will select an ‘ingenious and creative’ team to deliver a 90m² promotional space for the show, which takes place in east London’s Excel Centre from 6 to 8 March.

The project, supported by Rockpanel and Rockwool, will harness the manufacturer’s products to deliver an ‘improved acoustic’ that dampens surrounding noises for visitors to the pavilion. The structure will include a seating area, meeting space for 16 people and retail facilities.

The space will be in the show’s Building Performance area, next to the main seminar space. 

In its brief, the RIBA says it will ‘make use of the space to promote the RIBA brand, sell relevant architecture publications and promote the benefits of RIBA membership. We are looking to select a creative and ingenious architect/practice who can help us achieve our aims.’

Submissions must include a 10-page portfolio along with a short text explaining the applicant’s interest in the project and general approach to designing temporary spaces.

The winning team will receive a £7,500 fee to design and deliver the structure.

The deadline for applications is 2pm on 30 November.
