Competitions: Editor's Pick, 22.04.10

A temporary gate for the Olympics at Aldgate, two fire stations on the Isle of Wight and a performance space in Queen’s Park, Glasgow, your pick of the week’s best competitions

The Architecture Foundation’s (AF) latest competition is to design a temporary landmark on the border of the City of London and east  London. The structure will be located on the site of the historic Aldgate, removed in 1761 (see illustration above, circa 1600). Entries are due by 28 May. A shortlist will be announced in June, with each team awarded a £1,000 honorarium.

Isle of Wight Council seeks detailed design and project management services for two fire-service buildings. One is a headquarters building and 24/7 fire station; the other includes a small community facility and drop-in office space for staff. The budget is up to £940,000, and the deadline for tenders or requests to participate is 21 May.

The Glasgow Institute of Architects requires design proposals for a multi-purpose performance and activity space on the former site of Queen’s Park’s bandstand, which burned down in the 1990s. The total project cost will be under £500,000, and £2,000 will go to the winner. The deadline for submissions is 7 May.
