AJ Small Projects Sustainability Award-winner NEX architecture has been named on a five-strong shortlist to design a contemporary architecture pavilion at Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire
A total of 168 expressions of interest were made to the ‘Playful Incident’ competition which called for temporary structures to create new ways to experience the 1759 building’s grounds.
Kedleston Hall is owned by the National Trust and was designed by architects James Paine, Matthew Brettingham and Robert Adam.
The shortlisted teams will receive £400 to develop their final submission and the winner will receive £60,000 to realise the project.
The winning scheme will be chosen later this month and the completed installation will open to the public in August.
This week NEX architecture won the AJ’s Small Projects Sustainability Award, worth £750, for its Times Eureka Pavilion in Richmond, Surrey which was praised by the jury for ‘making plastic beautiful’ and for being ‘entirely recyclable’.
