Call out for architects, artists, innovators, and imaginators. Competition to design a new kind of public space to be seen by 1.6m people this summer and an international audience through the London Festival of Architecture.
Tottenham Pavilion is a project born from the Harringay Warehouse District; a former industrial site that has, over the past 20 years, been converted into live-work spaces by artists, makers, musicians, and entrepreneurs.
The community is a living example of anti-gentrification. The area has a unique power dynamic – it’s not simply grass-root, nor bottom-up, that’s far too linear – it has a power source that comes from the clash of differences. This commission is about preserving the anti-gentrification resistance of the area. The winning concept will learn lessons from a very unique corner of London and reinterpret them for a wider audience.
Part of the London Festival of Architecture 2020 program, both the winning and shortlisted designs will be featured in the festival.
