Competitions: Editor's Pick, 01.07.10

A municipal hall refurbishment in Wales, sustainable homes for the RIAS and a competition to design a new lunar base, this week’s round-up of top competitions

With no dedicated community buildings, Newbridge in South Wales is undertaking a £3.8 million refurbishment of its Newbridge Institute and Municipal Hall. Architects are sought for the project, which includes some new-build alongside the refurbishment of Grade II and Grade II*-listed buildings. Tenders must be received by 6 July.

As part of the Scottish Sustainable Communities Initiative, the Royal Incorporation of  Architects in Scotland (RIAS) is managing a design competition based around a site in Whitecross, Linlithgow. The RIAS seeks housing and urban design proposals that are sustainable and sensitive to context. Pre-qualification questionnaires must be submitted by 19 July.

It was only a matter of time before someone announced a competition for a new lunar base. Indeed, SHIFTboston has announced two: one, an inquiry into the design of lunar bases; the other, a challenge to design a radical lunar city. The deadline for submissions is 3 September.
