The RIBA is delighted to announce the launch of an invited design competition on behalf of Vital Arts, the arts organisation for Barts and the London NHS Trust for the design of an internal children’s play space and exterior roof garden within the new Royal London Hospital set to open in 2012. The Royal London will be Britain’s biggest new hospital, providing general and specialist services to the population of east London and beyond.
The competition will follow an invited design process with an open trawl of interest. Architect-led multi-disciplinary teams are invited to send in their Expression of Interest along with the accompanying PQQ document.
The deadline for submissions of Expressions of Interest is 15 September 2010. Five teams will then be selected for the design phase of the competition and each shortlisted team will be awarded an honorarium payment of £4,000 + VAT to develop concept designs.
