The London Boroughs of Lambeth and Wandsworth are inviting expressions of interest from cultural masterplanning professionals to extend the ‘cultural spine’ of London’s South Bank. Part of a multi-billion pound investment in the area, the programme aims to link Battersea Power Station and the wider Nine Elms district to existing arts facilities further downstream.

Glasgow’s Citizens Theatre is on the hunt for an architect for the £6.5 million redevelopment of its Grade B listed building. The theatre’s auditorium currently seats 500 people with a foyer capable of holding 200 guests alongside rehearsal rooms totaling 233m².

County Cork’s Engage Arts Festival has launched a competition for architects to design ‘innovative, concept-led, contemporary pieces’ of street furniture in Bandon. The contest is open to practicing architects and students. Proposed functions may include seating, lighting, bicycle stands, vending kiosks, planters, flower holders and or lighting. The winning designer will receive a £1,500 prize.
