The Government of South Australia is preparing to launch an international ideas contest for the future of the Royal Adelaide Hospital site
The hospital is due to move from the plot in 2016, paving the way for the city centre site to be turned into a ‘recreation, entertainment and mixed-use development’.
After an anonymous first stage, six entrants will be shortlisted to develop their schemes and will be paid honorariums worth £60,000. All submitted schemes will be exhibited.
Three winners will share a £180,000 prize fund with the ideas expected to ‘inform’ future masterplanning options.
Open to local and international architects, international teams selected to progress to stage two will be responsible for adding a local partner to their team.
Stage one will close 28 August. A public consultation on the shortlisted schemes is set to start on 16 September.
Documents are available through the dedicated contest page.
