The world has been shaken by the scale of coronavirus and it has implications for Tottenham Pavilion. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the virus.
The competition remains live, with an extended closing date. We have, however, decided to postpone the build phase of the project to 2021 due to the high levels of community involvement. The winning design will be the design we take forward to building in 2021 (subject to the transfer of finance raised and any new funding being achieved).
Here are the key points:
- Competition closing date has been extended to midnight on Wednesday 8 April 2020
- Building phase will be postponed to 2021
- Winning design will be the design that is used on the site in 2021
- Judging will be delayed and we expect to announce the winner and shortlisted designs around the end of May 2020
We remain in discussions with the London Festival of Architecture about both profiling the winner / shortlisted designs during this year's festival, in whatever format it takes place, and our involvement in next year's festival.
While this creates obvious challenges, it also creates opportunities. By delaying the building phase we are able to raise additional funds to those already achieved. We also want to expand the voluntary self-build programme to get more people involved and develop an even more ambitious programme of activity for the Pavilion. Finally, while we have already received a lot of coverage for the competition, we are optimistic we can premiere the winning design in more architectural publications who often work with longer lead times that were unachievable before.
We look forward to receiving your submissions (we already have a few).
