Museum designer sought for historic Northern Irish town

A competition has been launched to find a designer for a new museum in one of Northern Ireland's most important historic towns.

Coleraine Borough Council and the RIBA Competitions Office have invited expressions of interest to take part in a competitive interview process for the project.

The winning practice will undertake designs for either a museum on its own, worth £2 milion, or a museum and library together, for a combined £4.4 million.

The competition's brief demands that the scheme should allow 'the local community and tourists to enjoy and explore the rich history of Coleraine'.

The site neighbours the Giant's Causeway, a World Heritage Site, which was the scene of one of the most high-profile international competitions ever last year, for a new visitor centre.
