consegna entro 26 giugno 2009

Bournemouth Borough Council is seeking to appoint a registered architect, landscape architect, professional artist or designer to design a row of four beach huts utilising bold and dramatic architecture and then construct, deliver and install by December 31st 2009. The new huts will replace 5 existing huts and a blue portacabin located immediately west of Boscombe Pier on the promenade.

Collaborations between artists and other design professionals are particularly encouraged. The winning team will be able to demonstrate a track record of working in durable materials to create technically challenging distinctive public artwork or functional public facilities of a similar character.

Designers should have an understanding of civic amenity constraints and will be working in close collaboration with Bournemouth Borough Council's Boscombe Sea Change project team.

The deadline for submission of written questions is Friday 29th May 2009, with submission of models to arrive by  Friday 26th June 2009.
