The London Festival of Architecture and The Fitzrovia Partnership have launched an open call for architects, artists and designers to propose a temporary intervention that improve the pedestrian area outside Warren Street Station.
The ‘Welcome to Warren Street’ competition invites architects, designers, and artists to propose creative designs that signpost to key destinations in the area and promote the use of less polluted, and safe pathways.
Forming part of a four year partnership between The Fitzrovia Partnership and the London Festival of Architecture, the programme’s focus will be improving gateways into Fitzrovia and it will test and implement successful public realm schemes to improve navigation and the overall experience around the area. The first competition will prioritise Warren Street as the first gateway to reimagine the space and experience through sustainable, creative design solutions which address the challenges at this location.
The winning team will be awarded £37,000 to develop and deliver their design, which will be installed in June 2024 and remain in situ for one month.
If you’re interested in entering the competition you can attend an online drop-in session on 19 December 12.30pm – 1.30pm. Register here if you would like to attend.
The site visit for shortlisted teams will take place on Monday 22nd January 11.30am – 1pm.
Applicants are invited to submit their applications by midday on 10 January 2024 on Zealous, using the button below.
Lee Lyons, COO, The Fitzrovia Partnership said:
“We’re excited to be embarking on a four-year partnership with LFA to reimagine spaces in the area. Fitzrovia is known for creativity, and this presents an opportunity to work collaboratively with all stakeholders to develop and pilot new ideas which are sustainable and have the community at heart. Building on the Fitzrovia Village experience will be something to celebrate.”
