Archtriumph has launched an international ideas competition to design a Summer Pavilion to locate Museum Gardens, in London next to the V&A Museum of Childhood.
The aim is design a freestanding transportable temporary contemporary showcase Pavilion that reflects peace and its unique location. The Pavilion will reflect a peaceful space, encourage hope and highlight the need for ecological and sustainable architecture and design principles.
It should provide an inspirational space where visiting architects, designers, families or general public can stand, seat around to admire, embrace diversity and engage with each other to share discussions about design, importance and benefits of peace and co-existence or other stories in a peaceful setting.
This year's Triumph Pavilion entitled "The Peace Pavilion" will be dedicated to the newly created South and North nations of Sudan as we encourage a peaceful future through architecture. Sudan as a whole is a region that has contributed to architecture with construction of more Pyramids than Egypt. Pyramids were still being built in Sudan as late as AD 300. There are roughly 220 pyramids in Sudan compared to approximately 120 much larger pyramids that were constructed in Ancient Egypt over a period of 3000 years.
The competition is open to Architects, Architecture graduates and students, team of architects and Inter-disciplinary teams.
The planned Pavilion structure will be designed by a selected architect or design team through our Pavilion competition and our panel will select a project winner from the submitted entries that most satisfies the brief and is befitting of the Museum Gardens.
Pavilion should not exceed 4 meters in height and 20 square meters in area and the budget is $10,000 USD including all materials, fabrication, construction and any transportation cost. The ideas have to be submitted by 8 March 2013.
