The Lightbox gallery has launched a competition, in association with Tent London and The Architecture Foundation, to design a summer pavilion for its Woking site.
The project offers a ‘glimmer of hope’ in an arid climate for new architectural projects, says AF director Sarah Ichioka.
The Art Fund pavilion has a committed construction budget of £100 000, a sum awarded to the gallery by The Art Fund Prize last May.
The winning pavilion design will be shown at Tent London 2009 before moving to The Lightbox to serve as an extra exhibition space.
The pavilion will be made using Facit’s innovative computer-aided construction system, and entries must take this into account.
The deadline for submissions is 3 March. They will be judged by a panel of high-profile names, including Anish Kapoor and Wayne Hemingway.
