Ian Simpson wins National Wildflower Centre

  • Comment

Ian Simpson Architects has landed the international design competition for a new ‘architecturally striking’ complex at the National Wildflower Centre in Knowsley

Five other firms were shortlisted for the RIBA-led competition, including DM3 Architecture, Kirkland Fraser Moor, Nicolas Tye Architects, Studio Verna and Urban Salon Architects.

According to RIBA, the winning proposal for the educational, conference and seed production complex features a ‘powerful Fibonacci generated spiral solution which has a dramatic wild flower head inspired conference centre focus; a distinctive and memorable architectural statement cleverly combining the brief’s organic and mathematical themes’.

Ian Simpson Architects is working on the project with engineering firms Adams Kara Taylor and Hoare Lea.

Backing the competition is Landlife, the wildflower charity, which already has £100,000 of funding for the competition provided through the Northwest Regional Development Agency.
