Last chance to register for Forgotten Spaces competitions

The final deadline for registration to the London and Sheffield Forgotten Spaces competitions is Wednesday (13 April) this week

The two competitions – which are being run in tandem – invite architects, students, artists and designers to propose imaginative reuses for disused spaces in London and Sheffield.

Forgotten Spaces in the capital is run by RIBA London with Qatari Diar, Ordnance Survey and the mayor’s architecture office, Design for London.

The top entries will go on show at Somerset House in the autumn and the winning design team will receive a £5,000 cash prize with second place winning £2,000 and the third place entry taking home £1,000.

Shortlisted entries to the Sheffield competition will feature in a six week-long exhibition at the City’s Crucible Theatre, with the three top design teams receiving similar cash prizes. Forgotten Spaces Sheffield winners will be announced at an event coinciding with the Stirling Prize awards.

Gort Scott Architects’ Reservoir Roofs scheme (pictured) won last year’s Forgotten Spaces London competition.

The deadline for final submission of proposals for both competitions remains 12 May.
