A Room for London: London's view with a room | Art

A Room for London: London's view with a room | Art

A competition to discover Londoners' most remarkable ideas for the capital.

Do you have a brilliant idea for London? An ingenious solution to a local problem or a magnificent plan for civic transformation?

Artangel and the London Evening Standard are searching for the idealists and innovators, fixers and dreamers who have remarkable ideas for the future of our capital.

Every month of the Olympic year, one Londoner will have the chance to stay overnight in A room for London discussing, developing and sleeping on their winning idea.

For every day of the Olympic year, A Room for London will be one of the city's most unusual and prominent architectural landmarks, offering a unique view on the capital in 2012.

This iconic structure, a beautifully crafted boat, will sit on top of the Queen Elizabeth Hall on London's Southbank Centre. It will function much like a one-bed hotel, hosting guests who can enjoy a panorama that stretches from Big Ben to St Paul's cathedral. This is contemporary architecture at its most playful, beguiling and thought-provoking.

A Room for London is a collaboration between Living Architecture and Artangel, in association with Southbank Centre, the London 2012 Festival and Arts Council England

A Room for London is part of the London 2012 Festival - as the culmination of the Cultural Olympiad this UK-wide festival will feature leading artists from around the world from 21 June - 9 September 2012.
