The brief will ask participating teams to propose versatile pieces of urban infrastructure that enable a range of social and cultural activities.  

Let your imagination run riot – we’re looking for speculative proposals that are fun and playful, but which consider the ways public space might better serve the whole community. 

The day-long event will take place at 66 Portland Place on 15th June and will be followed by networking drinks. 

All proposals developed in the workshop will be published in the RIBA Journal and on a dedicated microsite, and all participating practices will receive an honorarium of £1000.   

The RIBAJ event is organised in partnership with Marshalls Bricks & Masonry, and the brief will seek ideas for robust, economical structures and landscape works that might be constructed primarily in concrete bricks and blocks.  

We are looking for teams from five architectural practices, each comprising three designers.  

Keen to take part? Please register your interest here by 4pm on 19th May 2023.
