Watch out for a competition announcement in the near future concerning two town hall extensions, one on the north, one in the south. The intention is to prompt thinking about the nature of municipal democracy in the 21st century, and thus derive a new form of town hall architecture. The competition is being prompted by the IPPR think tank, and will be organised in conjunction with the two local authorities and The Architects' Journal. The first stage will be open and will ask for practice statements and an indication of approach to the brief and to the site (definitely no designs! ) A shortlist will be picked for each project and the practices will be paid to produce designs for the second stage. The intention is to build the results.
