The very open brief is intended to give maximum freedom of expression. There are constraints imposed by the self-led build requirement, the light-weight of the structure and the budget. Form and function are, contrastingly, as open as the other constrains permit.
The Antepavilon does not need to be habitable as a dwelling. You are however welcome to propose a habitable or semi-habitable structure if you choose and have a strategy to deliver that within the budget.
It is intended that the winner will take a hands-on approach to the construction of the project, working with labourers and craftspeople on site to build the project.
Entries will simple be realisable with materials and labour to this value. These costs will be at typical daily rates for general labourers and craftsmen and materials at trade supply rates.
Yes in part. The £10,000 cash component of the project fund will be for you to allocate on labour and materials as you choose. The £15,000 of materials and labour will be provided by Shiva Ltd and their approved contractors.
Yes. Any proposals for sponsorship and what brand exposure the company would require in return should be made to the Art House Foundation and Architecture Foundation once your entry has been shortlisted.
