Competitions: Editor's Pick, 02.12.10

Landscape architect for The Royal Parks, affordable housing for Torbay Council, and a design competition for an urban park in Taichung, China; the editor’s pick of this week’s top competitions

The Royal Parks, guardian of flower arrangements in St. James’s and Kensington Garden’s gold-plated Albert Memorial, is seeking contenders for a £500,000 landscape architectural services framework. The three-year contract will include advisory and professional services as well as project management on specific schemes. Practices with an interest are advised to submit applications quickly - the deadline is midday on 20 December.

Torbay Council is seeking an architect for two lots of design services to RIBA Stage D.  Lot One is for a site at Hatchcombe Nurseries, Toquay, intended to be developed into 65-75 affordable and open market extra care housing units. Lot Two is at Grange Road, Paignton, for a development of 60-75 mixed tenure and affordable open market housing units. Requests for documents must be received by noon on 7 January 2011.

An international competition has been launched by Taichung City Government for a new urban park in an 254-hectare area that includes the former Taichung (Shuinan) Airport and its vicinities.  Areas surrounding the park will be divided into four districts according to their features: Eco Residential District, Gateway District, Cultural Business District, and Innovation R&D District.  Initial tenders must be received by 25 February 2011.
