An open call for entries will give designers the chance to create a temporary new building at the Museum of London in which the public can offer their thoughts on future expansion plans at the institution.

Timed to launch during the opening weekend of June’s London Festival of Architecture, the pavilion will also invite visitors to discuss the “cultural landscape” of the surrounding city. It will chime with the festival’s theme of Capital, standing for three months.

Emilie Rolland, the Creative Partnerships Manager at the museum, said planners were hoping to “invigorate” the venue’s exterior and “enhance its visibility” during the coming years. “We hope this commission provides a bold installation that acts as a talking point,” she added.

Practices, designers or teams are required to send a portfolio and covering letter to the museum by February 10 2014.
