Riverview is in line to be demolished to make way for a car park, but a competition initiated by London-based architect John McAslan has been launched to help rescue the building ( Design contest is 'last chance to save Rudolph school ).
Built in 1958, Riverview High School is of great significance as it is Rudolph's first public building, and also a signature piece of work that marks a transition in the Modernist's career.
According to the competition objectives, the winning scheme must be capable of gaining strong public support, while meeting the school board's requirements as well as the developer's goals.
The SAF is looking for expressions of interest by September 14, and will select a shortlist of five development teams and recommend the winning scheme to the school board.
Competitive designs will be sought once the five teams are selected, with a winner announced in mid-November.
