Some of the most compelling design competitions provide very open guidelines, and the entry for 'A Room for London' by Sanzpont shows the extent to which such criteria can allow the imagination to run wild.
Artangel and Living Architecture called for submissions for a structural installation atop Queen Elizabeth Hall. A modest one-bedroom building would surely go noticed at such a popular vantage point, and its attraction would grow increasingly obvious with such a dynamic design.
The proposal for this conceptual pavilion suggests an architectural entity in an ever-changing state. Responding to day and night and each of the seasons, the solar paneled 'Room for London' by Sanzpont opens, closes, grows, shrinks and glows in various colors to respond to the natural world that it inhabits and harnesses.
