Entries sought to shed light on retail park challenge

Students and schools are reminded that the 'Big Shed Challenge' competition is formally under way, supported by The Architects' Journal.

The competition - to rethink the retail park as an architectural idea - is sponsored by DIY giant B&Q, roofing and cladding specialist CA Building Products, rooflight manufacturer Brett Martin and steel-maker Corus.

Designs have to be submitted by 31 March 2005. Entries will be judged by a panel chaired by AJ columnist Simon Allford of Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, recently elected as the RIBA's new vice-president for education. Prizes totalling £10,000 will be presented at an awards ceremony in London, and the winning designs and selected entries will feature in the AJ and be exhibited in London and other parts of the country. The brief for the competition can be found at www. cagroup. ltd. uk/Challenge. html
