Arquitectum 8th International Contest: London 2008

Co-sponsor of this international ideas competition is the Architectural Association (AA) School of London. The design challenge concerns a movable architecture gallery, containing and distributing design to the city; travels across the River Thames to connect the various art spaces and collect visitors along the river; especially in the South Bank. The exhibition space should adapt to the movement of the river, to the different requirements of an exhibition and the artist, and to the weather in London meaning summer and winter potentialities.

The jury for the competition is comprised of AA members and distinguished London architects. The competition launches on April 1, 2008, with the deadline to register on June 30, 2008. The submission deadline is July 20, 2008, followed by an exhibition held from September 22 to 26, 2008.

The winner will come to London, and a ceremony will take place at the AA, together with the available members of the jury.

Entry fees are as follows: $100 US until March 31, 2008; $150 US from April 1 to 30, 2008; and $200 US from May 1 to June 30, 2008.
