The London Festival of Architecture (LFA), Greater London Authority (GLA) and London Borough of Newham (LBN) lanciano il concorso di idee Silvertown Flyover, invitando i partecipanti a proporre idee per stimolare la crescita degli ambienti destinati al lavoro creativo del Royal Docks utilizzando gli spazio vuoti sotto il cavalcavia Silvertown. Viene richiesto un progetto permeabile, capace di creare un'attrazione nella zona definendo una serie di spazi destinati alla produzione, all'innovazione e alla creazione di nuove opportunità lavorative per i residenti di Newham e Londra.
Le proposte dovranno tener conto dello sviluppo dell'intera area, migliorando lo spazio pubblico circostante e intervenendo in modo tale da migliorare la leggibilità del sito, impostando l'intervento come un elemento fondamentale nell'ambito delle infrastrutture della zona.
Sono invitati a partecipare architetti, designer e creativi emergenti che avranno la possibilità di dare una risposta alle sfide logistiche offerte dal sito.
The London Festival of Architecture (LFA), Greater London Authority (GLA) and London Borough of Newham (LBN) invite you to submit ideas to this new competition for solutions for improving connectivity and increasing the amount of creative workspace in the Royal Docks, by utilising vacant space under the Silvertown flyover.
The commission requires that you develop a viable and deliverable project. A permeable space is needed that creates a distinct and attractive area, with a range of spaces for working, production and innovation, creating new employment opportunities for Newham residents and Londoners.
We also seek proposals that take into account the development coming forward in the area, including your ideas for interventions in the surrounding public realm and wayfinding interventions that improve legibility in the area. You should set out how your project might function as a key piece of connective infrastructure over the next 2, 5 and 10 years as surrounding development and infrastructure projects come forward for development.
Competition is open to established and emerging architects, designers and creatives to create a response to the opportunity and logistical challenges that this forgotten space under the flyover can provide.
This is a two-stage submission process.
- First Stage
Deadline for first submission is Midday, 4th April 2017. Please send expressions of interest in a PDF format to admin@londonfestivalofarchitecture.
- Second Stage
Deadline for second submission is 16th May 2017. Up to 6 submissions will be shortlisted to submit a more detailed proposal. These teams will be offered an honorarium of £500.
The winning entry will be eligible for project and design development with the new Royal Docks team and potential investment from the Royal Docks Enterprise Zone funding to seed an innovative and attractive part of the Royal Docks.
The results of the competition will be open to the public as part of an exhibition in June 2017, and the resulting commission will enable the Royal Docks to attract and retain creative businesses and individuals.
