Description
The Architecture Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of an open international competition to design a permanent yet flexible, free standing group of kiosks in Meridian Square, Stratford, London, for use before, during and after the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Situated at the front of Stratford Regional Station and hosting a variety of uses, the kiosks will serve as key venues for information, orientation and services within the rapidly changing town centre.

Since 2009 the local authority, the London Borough of Newham (LBN) has embarked on an ambitious programme of public realm works throughout the centre of Stratford with the aim of improving the quality of the town centre for those that live, work, and shop in the area, whilst also preparing to welcome the millions of visitors who will come to the area during 2012. Studio Egret West, working for LBN, has developed a master plan for the area with new public realm designs, consolidated traffic, de-cluttered spaces and major new landmark structures. Design for London has been closely involved in this project as part of the London Development Agency's Olympic Fringe public realm programme.

The design competition is open, but not limited to: architects, designers, artists, product designers, and related disciplines. The Architecture Foundation encourages design teams to suggest flexible and innovative yet realisable designs for this permanent structure.
