Deadline for submissions is Monday 15 July 2013 (6pm).
Working closely with Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and the Royal Academy of Arts, The Architecture Foundation has launched an open call for multidisciplinary design teams to put forward new ideas and visions for self-selected sites along the Tidal Thames reflecting on relevant changing social, economic, cultural and environmental conditions and concerns. With proposals for new airports, floating villages and increased connectivity between North and South London it seems an appropriate time to consider how this artery that runs through the capital can best be harnessed to aid the way we will live in the future.
London As It Could Be Now is looking for architect-led teams to express an interest in taking part in a public design workshop to be held in September. The workshop will involve teams presenting their proposals and ideas relating to the Thames to a panel of expert advisors as well as to a general audience. The ideas presented will subsequently be exhibited as part of the 'Future of London' section of the Richard Rogers: Inside Out exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts as of September 2013.
Design teams are asked to submit portfolios of their past work along with a covering letter that explains why they are interested in this initiative, which site(s) they wish to work with along the Thames and what issue(s) they are keen to address. Shortlisted teams will be given an honorarium to work up design proposals ahead of the public presentation in September.
