RIBA to launch Gulf competition

  • Comment

RIBA has launched a new architectural competition for students living in the Middle East

The competition’s objective, according to RIBA is to explore ‘new visions and develop design proposals for ‘the city’. It aims to set students the challenge of re-addressing the street culture and its human activities to the urban context’.

Open to those living in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) students will be asked to choose a site in an urban context, which they feel is in need of rejuvenation and come up with ideas and concepts representing the modern interpretation of the Souk.

RIBA president, Sunand Prasad said: ‘The newly established RIBA Gulf Chapter has launched the scheme to celebrate the work demonstrated by students across the Gulf with focus on the theme of revitalisation of urban spaces.’

The competition brief will be available to download from www.architecture.com from 11th May 2009.  The deadline for submission of designs is Tuesday 8th September 2009. The results of the competition will be announced with the formal launch of the RIBA Gulf Chapter on 21st October at the British Embassy, Abu Dhabi.

The GCC comprises of six countries: the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
