Four young practices shortlisted for floating cinema for London in summer 2013

The results of an Architecture Foundation competition for a floating cinema in the waters of East London have been released. Four young and flourishing practices have been shortlisted and will reveal their developed concepts in September. The design studios are as follows:

Duggan Morris (London)
Nilsson Pflugfelder (Berlin/London)
OBRA (New York/Beijing)
vPPR (London)

A brief for the design reads: “The competition is looking for an innovative and creative design solution that embodies UP Projects! 2013 theme of ‘Extra-Ordinary!’ offering delight and playfulness as well as being robust and serviceable for a permanent lifespan on the water. The vessel needs to accommodate intimate on-board film screenings, larger outdoor film events as well as a base for film-related talks and activities.”
