Designers sought for hospital children’s play space

An architect-led multidisciplinary design team is being sought to create an internal children’s play space and exterior roof garden for the new Royal London Hospital, set to open in 2012.

A competition is being organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects on behalf of Vital Arts, the arts organisation for hospital operator Barts and the London NHS Trust.

The competition is to design an internal children’s play space and an exterior roof garden for the hospital, which is being designed by architect HOK.

Design teams are invited to send in their expressions of interest along with the PQQ document. The deadline for submissions of expressions of interest is 15 September.

Five teams will be selected for the design phase of the competition and each shortlisted team will be awarded an honorarium payment of £4000 plus VAT to develop concept designs.
