Competitions: Editor's Pick, 19.01.12

Cambridge university’s north-west masterplan, a RIAI school design contest and Slovenia’s new national library. The editor’s pick of this week’s top competitions

The University of Cambridge is on the hunt for architects and landscape designers for phase one of its north-west Cambridge masterplan. The project includes a range of buildings, with student and family housing, a community hall and a health centre. [Submissions to be received by 6 February]

The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland has launched a contest to design a post-primary school in West Dublin. £8,000 will go to each of the seven schemes shortlisted for the second stage and the winner’s design will be commissioned. The organisers are looking for innovative and energy-efficient plans. [Submissions should be received by 20 March]

The Slovenian Chamber of Architecture and Spatial Planning has launched a design competition for a national and university library in Ljubljana with a prize of €73,000 (£60,386). The NUK II scheme will be built over the remains of a Roman settlement, and it is hoped the design will reflect ‘local historic characteristics’. [Submissions must be received by 23 March]
