Architectural studio Carmody Groarke has been selected to design the Frieze Art Fair October 13-16 in London. In previous years the fair has employed a series of internationally recognized architectural firms including Caruso St John (2008-2010), Jamie Fobert (2006–2007) and David Adjaye (2003-2005).
"The architectural design of Frieze Art Fair has been important to us from the beginning," said Fair directors Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover. "Working with some of the most innovative architectural practices has brought a freshness to the fair experience each year for galleries and visitors alike."

Kevin Carmody and Andrew Groarke have become known for their diverse portfolio of work, quickly building a reputation for forward-thinking design, winning two RIBA awards in 2010. Carmody Groarke were proud recipients of the Building Design UK Young Architect of the Year (YAYA) in 2007 and have recently been named as winners of the International Emerging Architecture Award by The Architectural Review.
"It is a privilege to work on a project which has such a strong legacy of creative collaboration between client and architect," said Kevin Carmody and Andrew Groarke.
Some of their upcoming projects include ‘Postmodernism: Style & Subversion’ at the V&A and a permanent memorial to the victims of the Indian Ocean Tsunami located at the Natural History Museum. They have frequently collaborated with contemporary artists, including Antony Gormley on his Blind Light pavilion at the Hayward Gallery and Carsten Holler on The Double Club for Fondazione Prada.
