Cedric Price Memorial competition

Cedric Price, who died this summer, influenced architectural thinking across the world. The AJ has launched an ideas competition as a tribute both to him and to his way of thinking.

A judging panel will be chaired by Will Alsop, who worked in the Price office. Entries will be displayed at a commemorative evening on Thursday 6 November (further details nearer the time), to which entrants will be invited. A selection of entries will be published in the AJ. The competition is open to all Architects, students, engineers and others are invited to contribute entries to an open competition marking the life and work of Cedric Price (1934-2003). This is an ideas competition for an appropriate memorial, to be devised in the spirit with which Price himself might have undertaken such a project.
