600 whittled down to 5 for London pavilion 

Over 600 entries from 52 countries were entered in the design competition for the Art Fund Pavilion which will serve as a semi-permanent extension to The Lighthouse museum and gallery. 5 have now been selected to battle for the pavilion design which marks awarding of the £100,000 Art Fund Prize to The Lighthouse.

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. The Shortlisted Entries are: AREA [Architecture Research Athens], Greece; Feix & Merlin Architects with Martin Stockley Associates, UK; IN & EDIT Architecture, France; Karim Muallem, UK; and Tina Manis Associates, USA.

“The unprecedented level of interest in this competition may be attributed to a global slowdown being experienced by many professional practices and the special interest associated with the prospect of designing a public building/space, be it even a small public space - a definite tick box on most architects list of dream projects,” said Jimmy MacDonald of Tent London, the events agency who organised the competition.

The shortlisted entries and other applications that demonstrate the range of work submitted to the competition will be exhibited at The Lightbox from 31 March - 12 April 2009 and the winner will be announced on the 6 April 2009.

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.
