McChesney's prototype landscape to be rolled out across Middlesbrough

  • Comment
Ian McChesney has scooped first prize in the RIBA contest to design a new 'prototype' landscape which could be rolled out across Middlesbrough.

The AJ/Corus 40 Under 40 starlet beat four other finalists, including Paris-based Arkenspaces and London fledgling Newbetter, in the A66 Gateway contest (Five battle it out to design Middlesbrough road).

The teams were asked to come up with innovative proposals to revamp the public realm around the town's Cargo Fleet transport interchange.

However, it is understood that if McChesney's scheme is successful, Middlesbrough Council would consider repeating the 'prototype treatment' throughout the 'A66 roadscape'.

The competition was backed by project managers Tees Valley Arts, Middlesbrough Council, Tees Valley Regeneration and Halcrow.
