Back for its second year, RIBA London with developer and investor Qatari Diar and Ordnance Survey, have launched a new Forgotten Spaces ideas competition for 2011. This year’s competition invites architects to explore the potential of localism by encouraging local engagement and active participation in the development of new urban realm schemes.  The full Forgotten Spaces 2011 competition brief will be available from the RIBA London website from 17 February 2011, see www.architecture.com/ribalondon. The deadline for registration is 30 March with competition entries accepted up until 12 May.

The City of Tirana, Albania, has launched an international design competition for a new cultural complex, consisting of a new mosque and a connecting museum of Tirana and religious harmony. The competition aims to rehabilitate the city of Tirana’s main square, Scanderbeg Square, and also to provide a mosque for the increasing number of Muslim citizens. The deadline for expressions of interest is 21 February.

The Department of Architecture at The University of Texas at Austin has launched a competition which invites composers and architects to collaboratively explore the relationships between space and music. Entrants are invited to either compose music and propose design interventions for particular sites, or to write music based on architectural/spatial logic(s). The contest is open to both students and practising architects. The deadline for stage one entries is 17 May.
