Going Underground contest: more entries on show

  • Comment

Hopkins’ Olympic velodrome has inspired an underground cycling Pringle Tube in the latest RIW-AJ competition entry. 

The proposal by Tony Broomhead, founder of Sheffield-based OS31, suggests building 90 subterranean levels below the 2012 Games’ showpiece arena.

He explains: ‘Until now only the elite have had the chance to cycle on the circuit at the “Pringle”, but with 90 sub-terrain levels of track everyone can be a champion.’

The RIW and AJ Going Underground competition is inviting imaginative designs for new subterranean concepts beneath a UK landmark.

How to enter:

  • Choose a UK landmark and propose an underground structure beneath it
  • Submit your proposal on the ‘RIW Going Underground Drawing Sheet’ PDF
  • Your proposal can be hand drawn, rendered or drawn in CAD. Drawings of any size will be accepted, but A2 or A3 is the preferred size
  • See the attached ‘Rules and conditions of entry’ PDF for more info
  • Send your proposal to goingunderground@cibcomms.co.uk
  • Please share your idea on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using hashtag #goingunderground

Make founder Ken Shuttleworth will be one of the judges, which will see the winning entry receive £1,000 of holiday vouchers and the best designs feature in the AJ.

The closing date for entries is 8 May 2015.
