Serpentine Galleries announces a global open-call for new forms of architecture in collaboration with Google Arts & Culture and Sir David Adjaye OBE

Applicants are invited to propose imaginary city spaces and speculations on the built environment to be developed and experienced in augmented reality (AR) on site at the Serpentine Galleries in Summer 2019. An emerging tool and medium, conversations surrounding AR today have the opportunity to shape its purpose tomorrow. We are seeking projects that embrace this technology, considering how AR could transform our spatial, social and structural experience of the city now and in the future.

We encourage applications from individuals, studios and collectives from across a range of fields and skills at any career stage – architects, designers, games developers, technologists and artists are all encouraged to apply. Shortlisted commissions will be guided and mentored by advisors from architecture, engineering and immersive technologies to develop their ideas and test their feasibility. A final commission will be supported by a production team led by the Serpentine Galleries.

Find out more about how to apply on the Serpentine Augmented Architecture website, deadline 25 Feb, 10 am GMT.

Serpentine Augmented Architecture builds on the legacy of the annual Serpentine Pavilion commission by connecting the Serpentine’s expertise in commissioning new architecture with its work in the field of advanced technologies.

The commission will be selected by:
Virgil Abloh, Artist & Designer; Sir David Adjaye, OBE, Architect and Trustee of the Serpentine Galleries; Amira Gad, Curator, Exhibitions & Architecture, Serpentine Galleries; Freya Murray, Creative Lead, Google Arts & Culture Lab; Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director, Serpentine Galleries; Yana Peel, CEO, Serpentine Galleries; Amit Sood, Director, Google Arts & Culture; Ben Vickers, Chief Technology Officer, Serpentine Galleries; Kay Watson, Digital Curator, Serpentine Galleries; Greg Williams, Editor-in-Chief, WIRED UK
