Exhibition of RIBA Competition Projects
Venue: CUBE Gallery, 113 - 115 Portland Street, Manchester
Dates: 2 May to 17 May 2008
A new spring exhibition organised by the RIBA Competitions Office opens in May showing a selection of recent competition results and a built project, all of which originated through RIBA competitions.
This exciting and varied selection of projects has been chosen to show the range of solutions generated through architectural competitions and will include:
Egremont Castle Performance Structure, Cumbria
The winning design by Decosterd-Cotting Architects with Guscetti-Tournier Engineers from Geneva, Swizterland and the shortlisted schemes.
Brockholes Wetland and Woodland Nature Reserve, Preston
The winning design by Adam Khan Architects and the shortlisted schemes for the competition to design a new visitor facility for Brockholes.
Sheffield Parkway Footbridge
The winning design by Tim Norlund, a 23 year old architect from Denmark who had beaten over 100 entries to gain first prize in this competition. Plus the shortlisted entries.
Avenham Park Pavillion, Preston
This project was won through an invited design competition in February 2005 by Ian McChesney Architects. A series of boards will show the development of the design from the original competition entry through to completion.
The exhibition celebrates some of the most successful projects so far in 2008 and demonstrates how the competitions process can laud emerging practices as well as established ones.
