The Art Fund Pavilion//Campaign Approach

Campaign recently submitted their application to TENT London to design a Summer pavilion. The Pavilion sets out to become a lantern; a lantern for the Lightbox Museum by day & night.


Applicants were asked to design a semi-permanent pavilion, which will serve as additional gallery space for The Lightbox. The museum and gallery, which is already housed in a RIBA Award-winning building by Marks Barfield Architects, have decided to mark their award of the £100,000 Art Fund Prize by investing in architecture again by initiating and financing this competition.

The entries were reviewed by an elite panel of judges that included the Director of The Architecture Foundation, Sarah Ichioka and the Turner-Prize nominated artist, Richard Wilson. Above and below: Feix&Merlin Architects with Martin Stockley Associates.

The winning entry will be engineered and constructed by Facit and shown as part of Tent London during the London Design Festival 2009, before taking up residence at The Lightbox.
