A Room for London,
London

The challenge was to create a room on one of the most visible sites in the British capital, where up to two people at a time could spend a unique night in an exemplary architectural landmark.

Alongside public booking, the Room will play host to a guest programme of special visitors - artists, writers and cultural commentators of all kinds.

These ‘thinkers-in-residence' will be invited to stay and encouraged to muse on the city at a moment in time, through writing, image-making, online postings or live webcasts from the Room itself as their own idiosyncratic entries in the logbook. Some contributions will be instantly experienced by the public; others developed slowly during the course of the year. All visitors will be offered a chance to share experiences of a night in the Room.
