Thank you to all 428 people that took part in the Tottenham Pavilion community vote.
We had originally planned to host a series of exhibitions and talks. Lockdown put an end to this and the digital vote was the only way we could keep it going. The process wasn’t faultless, we had to monitor votes to make sure they were all local and we know it was a mammoth task trying to look through so many designs. What it did do, however, is give us a good indication of which designs were popular and which designs voters didn’t like.
We have decided to award the status of Community Vote to a small group of designs that were clearly most popular (based on average rating and voting levels).
In no particular order, the five Community Vote designs are:
What Happens Next?
All of the Community Vote designs are now with our judging panel who are reviewing the full applications to assess viability, practically and the overall design. The final shortlist and winner will be created by the judges taking into account the results of the Community Vote and their own chosen designs from the 166 submitted.
Our judging panel has changed a little. Cllr Ejiofor and Hannah Place have been replaced by Ryan Hughes, a HWD resident & architect, and we’ve welcomed the other half of Sean & Stephen to the panel. View panel here>>
Results of the shortlist and the winner will be announced during the London Festival of Architecture in June – more on this will be announced next week.
When will it be built?
The original plan was to be about to start the building right now, with the Pavilion open until the end of September. For obvious reasons this has all been postponed and we have found alternative ways to continue the competition.
Everything is up in the air when it comes to what happens next. We still need to finish fundraising and continue discussions to see if the original site will be available to accommodate the Pavilion in 2021. One thing remains constant though, and that is our passion to see a Pavilion constructed. That is not going to change. So watch this space.
