Bird College, Sidcup
[Requests to participate must be received by 12 October] Launched on behalf of Bird College in Sidcup, this RIBA-led design competition calls for expressions of interest from architects for a £13 million overhaul of the college’s existing sites
Recognised as a prominent school of dance, music and theatre performance, Bird College seeks architect lead design teams to combine facilities currently split over six sites into a coherent modern teaching resource for staff and students.
Currently providing 4,500m² over the numerous sites, the school’s rising student intake requires the new facilities to increase to 6,000m², and will necessitate the best use of existing structures alongside new additions.
Six teams will be invited to develop design proposals following a pre-qualification stage, with each of the six receiving £5,000 for their efforts a jury panel will then decide the winner.
