The Resourceful Architect: Call For Ideas

Deadline for entries: Fri 8 April 2011

The Resourceful Architect is an open call for ideas about the future uses of architecture from the RSA and The Architecture Foundation, in development of the AF's 2009 project, And Now What? Rethinking Spatial Practice.

We are collecting examples of the resourcefulness that architects are showing in this climate of financial constraint and emphatic localism, and give them a public platform. Your ideas can be entirely new and prompted by this call, or they may be already in development; they may also be completed but under-exposed: above all they should be resourceful. Ideas can come from architects, students of architecture or multidisciplinary teams.

A shortlist of ideas will be presented before an international panel of critics and an audience of potential collaborators, patrons and clients at a public 'Day of Ideas' in the RSA's historic Great Room auditorium on 18 May 2011, with mentoring and a cash prize for the best.
