initial call for ideas: architectural concept


The Call for Ideas is now closed.

At the initial stage, the Centre of Attention has been seeking proposals for the re-imagining of Sutton Scarsdale Hall into a pavilion of postcontemporary curating. All ideas, gestural, utopian or pragmatic welcome.

This call was open to architects, designers, artists, curators and others. A longlist of design proposals is published here. Images below show the current -and past- state of the building.
