Summer Speculations – Competition winners announced

One of Fluid’s key themes for the Culture Mile public realm strategy is the idea of ‘bringing the inside outside’ – transforming the streets with artistic interventions and unique events.

Running throughout August, the City of London’s Summer Speculations design competition offered the opportunity for teams to put forward their own innovative ideas for how we could achieve this

Architects, designers and artists were asked to identify spaces or opportunities within the Culture Mile to ‘bring the inside outside’, with a focus on innovative design, and architectural or structural changes that could be implemented within the Culture Mile to create an impact on the area’s existing built environment. Entrants were also asked to propose site-specific ideas, based on the area and the cultural activity that takes place there, with an emphasis on imaginative, speculative responses to brief.

Of the many entries received six were shortlisted, with the winner announced this week as design studio Spacehub. Find out more about their winning idea, ‘Beacons, Interventions, Connections’, as well as the other five shortlisted entries here.
