Final Europan deadline looms

CABE has issued a final call for entries for Europan 8, the architectural competition for architects under 40.

The design watchdog, which is running the British side of the competition, is determined to receive as many entries as possible.

The UK's European parteners will see this as a welcome change after the British contribution to the Europan 7 collapsed in 2003.

Europan is a biennial competition for young architects and architecture students to design housing schemes for sites across the EU.

The competition aims to encourage architects to address the 'social and economic changes occurring in towns and cities' and offers 'the opportunity for cross-cultural learning'.

CABE has proposed three UK sites, in Stonebridge, Milton Keynes and Oldham and - in collaboration with the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, the Housing Corporation and English Partnerships - claims to be 'focused on delivering and building' the winning schemes.
