Architects, artists and designers are invited to propose a floating structure to be sited on the Regent’s canal at Hoxton Docks in Hackney. The platform for entries is the 62 foot motor barge, ‘Ouse’, built in 1934 for canal operators, Canal Transport Ltd for maintenance on the Leeds-Liverpool canal. Ouse is now moored alongside Hoxton Docks as a base for the new structure.
As with its prececessor, the concept of the floating Antepavilion is not prescribed. Entries may be purely sculptural, structural or political, or have a real or notional function such as social, habitable or performance space. Proposals for public events to take place in the Antepavilion will need to be self-financing or resourced from the overall budget.
The panel of judges will be mindful of sustainability considerations and credit will be given to entries that, for example, make good use of recycled or renewable materials.
The Antepavilion commission is intended to facilitate hands-on engagement with craft and construction. It is therefore part of the brief that the winning design team will be engaged directly with the construction process in a hands-on manner. A credible realisation plan will be an essential feature of the winning proposal.
