The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has launched an open call for architects and architecture students to design a temporary installation for the Architecture Gallery at the RIBA at 66 Portland Place, London. The installation will be on show from June 4 through to August 2019, alongside a programme of talks and events, as part of the London Festival of Architecture (LFA).
The 2019 LFA theme is 'Boundaries.' The theme is open to interpretation, with no prescribed brief for how the gallery is to be animated. Submissions could take the form of a built installation, a set of architectural sculptures, sound pieces or a film.
Experimentation and imaginative thinking are encouraged and architects and students are welcome to develop ideas as a collaborative endeavor with an artist or designer.
"I'm delighted to present this unique opportunity to architects. Following in the footsteps of Assemble, Aberrant Architecture and Apparata, the Architecture Gallery at RIBA has proven a place for experimental exhibition-making and a platform for engaging a wide range of audiences with architecture," RIBA Head of Exhibitions & Interpretation, Marie Bak Mortensen said. "Knowing the ingenuity of architects, I look forward to receiving strong proposals to continue this trajectory."
The project is open to all RIBA Members, Chartered Practices and architecture students (for whom membership is free). Entry to the open call requires a named individual project leader who is a RIBA Member or employed by a RIBA Chartered Practice.
The deadline for entries is April 5, 2019.
