London hospitals launch design competition

One of the biggest and most famous hospital trusts, Guy's and St Thomas', has launched a competition for a £29 million children's hospital in London.

Located on the St Thomas' Hospital site on Lambeth Palace Road, in a conservation area near the Thames, the new building must be flexible enough to handle the changing nature of hospital care. It will replace facilities on both Guy's and St Thomas' sites.

The riba-approved competition will shortlist six practices, each receiving £10,000, to work up designs in September and October. Deadline for applications is 14 July. Contact riba Competitions Office: 0113 2341335.
