Artangel are donating part of their video archive of site-specific commissions to Tate to mark 20 years of projects. Interesting article here:
One of Artangel's forthcoming projects is A Room for London, a temporary one-bedroom installation by David Kohn Architects and artist Fiona Banner, co-commissioned with Living Architecture. The building will be a boat called ‘Roi des Belges’, sited on top of the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the Southbank during 2012. The building will offer views of a London panorama stretching from Big Ben to St Paul's cathedral.
Alongside public booking, the Room will play host to a guest programme of special visitors or 'thinkers-in-residence' – artists, writers and cultural commentators of all kinds. They will be invited to stay and reflect on the city at a moment in time through writing, image-making, online postings or live webcasts.
