A new teaching block at Carmarthen, the refurbishment of Birmingham’s National Indoor Arena and this year’s Prix W competition for the former French National Archives at Versaille; this week’s round-up of top competitions
Trinity University College in Carmarthen, Wales, needs an architect to design a new teaching block. The £4.5 million project for the college, which was founded in 1848 and was once part of the University of Wales, includes the demolition of three buildings on its leafy campus, centred around the historic Old College building (pictured). The deadline for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is 13 June.
The 12,700-seat National Indoor Arena in Birmingham is on the hunt for an architect to refurbish its public areas. The two-year framework agreement is divided into two phases, the latter of which focuses on detailed design. The deadline for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is 12pm on 29 June.
The mixed-use refurbishment of the French National Archives’ former warehouse in Versailles is the focus of this year’s Prix W competition, run by the Fondation d’Entreprise Wilmotte. The competition seeks imaginative ideas from students and architects who graduated after 1 January 2007. Registration closes on 15 September and the deadline for submissions is 15 October.
