RIBA launches design competition of Centenary Square

Centenary Square

Centenary SquareArchitects and designers are being offered the chance to play a key role in the regeneration of one of Birmingham’s largest public spaces, through a competition launched by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Landscape Institute on behalf of Birmingham City Council.
Centenary SquareFollowing the successful completion of the Library of Birmingham (shortlisted for the Stirling Prize 2014) and the planned changes around the edges of Centenary Square, the time is now right to regenerate this important space into a cultural hub and desirable square for the city.
Centenary SquareStage one of the competition will require digital submissions only, with five concept designs then being shortlisted for further development at the second stage.  Each shortlisted designer will receive an honorarium of £5,000 + VAT and be invited to present their designs for public consultation and then to the judging panel in March 2015.
