Competitions: Editor's Pick, 10.03.11

  • 1 Comment

The Royal Society of Arts’ Resourceful Architect competition, a series of charettes for the Scottish government and the RIBA Stephen Williams Scholarship; the editor’s pick of this week’s top competitions

The Royal Society of Arts, in collaboration with the Architecture Foundation, has launched an ideas competition for architects aimed at finding future uses for the profession’s skills. The open competition aims to gather material for a ‘Day of Ideas’ which will take place later this year at the society’s headquarters in London. The best entry will receive a cash prize. The deadline for submission of entry forms, fees and work is 6.00pm GMT on Friday 8 April.

The Scottish Government Directorate for Built Environment wishes to establish a framework contract with a number of ‘suitably qualified and experienced contractors’ to participate in the preparation and delivery of an estimated six or more locally driven planning/design charettes which will be delivered across Scotland in June and in March next year. The deadline for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is noon, 19 April.

Established in 2008, the RIBA Stephen Williams Scholarship of £5,000 is again being offered to support one student for a period of postgraduate studies lasting up to 12 months in the UK or abroad. Offered in memory of Stephen Williams, a past Director of Aedas, the scholarship holder will also receive an Aedas mentor if enrolled in a country where Aedas has an office. Applicants must have graduated from a Part I programme validated by the RIBA in the UK and be UK residents. The deadline for receipt of applications is 25 March 2011.
