BIG to Design 2016 Serpentine Pavilion While Four New 'Summer House' Architects are Announced
Archdaily.com
10th February 2016

Quote:
The Serpentine Galleries have revealed that the 2016 Serpentine Pavilion will be designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), alongside a surprise announcement that four "Summer Houses" will also be built by internationally acclaimed practices. Kunlé Adeyemi – NLÉ (Amsterdam/Lagos), Barkow Leibinger (Berlin/New York), Yona Friedman (Paris), and Asif Khan (London) will each design a 25sqm structure inspired by the nearby Queen Caroline’s Temple, a neo-Classical summer house built in 1734 and "a stone’s throw from the Serpentine Gallery." In line with the criteria for the selection of the Serpentine Pavilion architect, each chosen to design a Summer House has yet to realise a permanent building in England.

According to the Serpentine Galleries, the expanded scheme will be submitted to Westminster City Council Planning Office and District Surveyor’s Office for planning later this month. The Serpentine Summer Houses, sited one minute’s walk from the Serpentine Gallery, "will complement the world-famous Pavilion commission on the Gallery’s lawn by offering visitors an unrivalled, first-hand experience of contemporary architecture by leading international architects from across the generations, within the historic parkland of Kensington Gardens."

Museum of London competition launched
Bdonline.co.uk
11th February 2016

Quote:
Winner of £150m flagship arts job due this summer

An international design competition for a new £150 million home for the Museum of London has been launched today (Thursday).

It is being masterminded by Malcolm Reading Consultants and will see the museum relocate to a 25,000sq m site at West Smithfield in the City.

It comprises the vacant Smithfield General Market, the vacant Fish Market, the Red House, Iron Mountain and the Engine House – all of which sit at the Farringdon Road end of West Smithfield.

The museum is currently based at the nearby Barbican with this site expected to be turned into a concert venue.

The competition, which is being bankrolled by a £200,000 grant from the mayor of London Boris Johnson, is being procured in two stages with the turnover threshold for would-be entrants set at £2 million.

Competition organiser Malcolm Reading said: “We’ve been conscious of the need to level the field for competitors by keeping the turnover threshold low relative to the scale of the project. Designers who can’t meet this level are encouraged to collaborate with others.”

The deadline to enter the competition is March 15 with a shortlist due to be announced later in the spring with a winner set for this summer. The museum is set to open in 2021.

Full details of the competition jury will be announced later in the process but confirmed members include broadcaster and journalist Evan Davis (chair); director of the Museum of London, Sharon Ament; chairman of the board of governors, Clive Bannister; and chief executive of Stanhope and Museum of London board member David Camp.

The Smithfield building will significantly increase the current 17,000sq m size of the museum allowing it to put thousands of unseen relics on show for the first time.

The yellow outline is the top down area. A floor will be cast at this level with a 'moling hole' in it and excavation will continue down for the lower basements. The tops of some of the plunge columns installed during piling can just be seen - the I shapes coming up from new piles below.

The main heavy structural steel column locations are marked, rising from the pile cap locations.

The white column is a probable location for the next tower crane.

And if they don't rent it, the state or the city government will be able to rent by themselves for 1 years, and give the money to the owner of the flat. So if after that 1 year they didn' find any person to rent the flat, the government will be able to rent it once again

And if they didn't find any person to rent the apartment after the first year they will also have to pay a penalty fee. I think that could be the best solution for every city in the world, it don't have sense allow people to have completely empty a house when they own lot of houses, that is inmoral
