'Linking the Land': new Severn crossing ideas competition

Architects and engineers have been invited to design proposals for a new Severn crossing in a competition aimed to foster collaboration between the disciplines

RIBA South West, the Royal Society of Architects in Wales (RSAW) and the Institution of Civil Engineers in the South West have teamed up to promote the competition which is open to students as well as qualified architects and engineers.

The collaboration is intended as an ideas competition with no commitment to build the scheme. The brief states that entrants will ‘Design a concept crossing for the sole reason of providing passage over the obstacle of the Bristol Channel. We hope that your imagination will lead to creative interpretations of ‘Linking the Lands’.

The competition, will be divided into three categories:

  • Part I architectural students and engineering students up to 4th year undergraduate
  • Part II architectural students and engineering graduates
  • Chartered and Incorporated Members in the disciplines of both architecture and engineering

The entry form can be downloaded (see right) with a closing date of 30 April 2010.

Prizes will be awarded at a ceremony and exhibition launch on 23 June (Pierhead Building, Cardiff) for practitioners, and the exhibition will move to Bristol Central Library from 22 July to September 2010.
