The Architecture Foundation has launched a Newham Council-backed international design competition for a series of permanent Olympic Games information kiosks at Meridian Square in Stratford, east London. The brief is for designs that are ‘innovative yet realisable.’ A shortlist will be announced in June with each team receiving £1,500 to develop projects to RIBA stage D. The deadline for entries is 3 September.
The Winchester Project is commissioning a feasibility study for the refurbishment of The Winch youth and community centre north-west London. The lucky architect will consult with stakeholders and explore social enterprise, revenue generation and long-term business plans, producing proposals up to RIBA Stage C/D. The contract is worth £35,000 and the deadline for applications is 3 August.
Architectural panel manufacturer Mykon invites UK students to enter a design competition using its products. The brief requires innovative concepts that use Mykon’s aluminium honeycomb sandwich panels.. The winner will receive £500 and the chance to produce and exhibit their design.
