DKA and artist Fiona Banner have been selected to design A Room for London, a temporary hotel installation on top of the Queen Elizabeth Hall at Southbank Centre, London, which will be part of the London 2012 Festival, the culmination of the Cultural Olympiad.

The boat-shaped design was chosen from 500 entries in a competition set up by cultural organisations Living Architecture and Artangel, in association with the Southbank Centre.

The hotel will have panoramic windows and an upper viewing deck offering views of the capital.
