Beam – a Wakefield-based creative organisation dedicated to the improvement of the urban realm – and the RIBA have put the call out to find artists, architects, designers and other creative souls to submit design concepts for a mobile facility that will be taken into public space, schools and communities.
Funded by the Arts Council England and CABE, the competition is looking for ‘unique, innovative, yet practical’ approaches to the facility, combined with a relationship between arts, people and places.
Beam executive director Robert Powell said: ‘The results will allow us to get right to the heart of communities and engage people in the places where they live, learn, work, and play, highlighting beam’s commitment to integrated regeneration – creativity, collaborative learning, and meaningful engagement.’
Expressions of interest should be submitted no later than Friday 28 March 2008.
Beam will announce a shortlist of three applicants in April to develop detailed design proposals.
