Winner named in contest for RIBA Futurebuild stand

Gundry ducker
  • Comment

Covent Garden-based Gundry + Ducker has won the competition to design the RIBA’s £30,000 corporate stand at next year’s Futurebuild sustainability trade show

The single-phase competition sought a ‘highly visible and dynamic’ 100m² concession containing both a bookshop and a ‘feature space’ intended to draw in visitors.

Gundry + Ducker was founded in 2007 by Tyeth Gundry and Christian Ducker who met while working at Nigel Coates. The practice was chosen from an undisclosed shortlist.

The project – supported by Rockwool and Rockpanel – aims to ‘promote our members and the profession while adding an exciting architectural element’ to the major industry exhibition which runs from 5 to 7 March at ExCeL in east London.

Stephanie Bolton of Rockwool said: ‘Gundry + Ducker stood out from the competition for their creativity, their understanding of the space and the imaginative yet practical ways they propose to build the stand. We can’t wait to see how this design is realised at Futurebuild in what we’re sure will be one of the principal talking points of the show.’

The call for applications came a year after the institute held a contest for a £10,000 lounge, bookshop and meeting space at the Ecobuild trade show (pictured right, winning scheme by Freehaus) which has now been subsumed into Futurebuild.

The latest contest sought a ‘feature space’ for the RIBA, integrating either an art installation or interactive element to draw visitors into the concession. 

Applications were judged on creativity, deliverability, experience of temporary structures and positive track record in logistical and operational outcomes.

Gundry + Ducker will now receive £7,500 and be appointed to deliver its scheme and manage the contractor.
