Competition spearheads RIBA brownfield events

The RIBA is planning an open competition for multi-disciplinary practices to design housing on 50 brownfield sites as part of a series of events addressing the issue.

Entrants to the 'Fifty sites for the new millennium' competition will, says riba president David Rock, be expected to breach the current density guidelines. 'We want to look at what stops things happening,' he said.

A seminar next month on 'Lessons from Greenwich' will be followed at the end of May by a virtual exhibition on RIBA's web site, of brownfield developments, showing both existing best practice and models for future sites. From June to September it also hopes to run an exhibition following on from the Ideal Home Show, looking at how brownfield land can be used for housing. And in October it will issue a planning video on brownfield development to all members.
