Tottenham Pavilion is a grass roots, not-for-profit, architectural competition that managed to put a former car park on an international stage.
Due to covid-19, in order for the event to continue to be part of the London Festival of Architecture, we need to host an event online – and that’s where you might be able to help.
A hyper local story, with high profile intrigue.
Tottenham Pavilion will transform a disused former car park facing Seven Sisters Road, in north London. A four month competition created 166 submissions from all over the world – from individual artists to well established architectural practices. Voted on by both a community vote and a panel of professional judges, the Pavilion will be self built next year uniquely using a team of local volunteers.
The Event / LFA 2020
The world’s largest annual architectural festival, London Festival of Architecture, is having to go digital due to covid-19. Involvement in the festival was a real triumph for this project and one we want to continue.
We plan to host interviews with the warehouse community organisers, leading architectural judges and the winner of the competition on some sort of digital platform. There are fascinating details to share about a project run by volunteers, fuelled by passion and creating such an epic array of submissions. We want this story to stand out at a time of such uncertainty.
How You Can Help
We are looking for people to help us tell our story to a wider audience during LAF in June 2020. As we have been unable to realise our fundraising finance (due to the build be postponed), the project is a little cash strapped. We are looking for anyone who could host a digital event on Tottenham Pavilion, during the festival. In return, we’re offering you access to a great story, with an established international following.
If you or someone you know could help get this event out to the widest audience possible we’d really like to hear from you. After all, aren’t we all desperate for different news – news that reminds us that coming together is what 2020 should be remembered for.
