Icon for Oldham Competition

  • Comment
Icon for Oldham is a plan to provide a major new public artwork as part of a concerted campaign to raise the profile of the town and enhance its image locally, regionally and nationally. The project will also mark the principal vehicle route into Oldham, once the most important cotton manufacturing town in the world. Oldham is now re-asserting its status in the North West Region and intends to restore a real sense of pride of place.

The promoters anticipate a budget of £2M - £3M ( UK pounds )to achieve these aims. Icon for Oldham is part of a programme of strategic action lead by Oldham MBC and is supported by a wide spectrum of other public and private organisations. The client team now want to recruit an Artist, Architect, Landscape Architect or Creative Design Team to realise this project and are seeking Expressions of Interest from suitably qualified parties.

This is a challenging and exciting project and we want people with the best ideas who can develop realisable projects for a complex set of circumstances. We will shortlist up to 5 individuals or teams who will then each be paid an Honorarium to develop a technically feasible design proposal with outline implementation costs.
