The program challenges participants to design a NEW Museum of Architecture (MOA) in London on the site of the Iconic Battersea Power Station and takes into account the sensitivity of the existing structure and site location. The design should create a new Internationally, recognized landmark in London - A Cathedral to Architecture within an International Village of Architecture.
The proposal should include both design for the existing Power Station building, extension and plans for the garden around it.
It is the organiser's intention for this stage (Stage 2) of the competition to have a few parameters, but for the architects to make the decision on the ratio, size, allocation and design of the Museum's layout. The participants are free to distribute the required space for the Museum as they see fit to allow their ideas to shine through.
However exciting and challenging the creative opportunity presented within such liberty, it is important that proposals include the specified spaces in the brief. Participants are free to added other spaces to the program to fit in with today's Architecture practice or that of the future.
