York historic Guildhall and riverside

competition submission deadline is Tuesday 6 November

City of York Council have launched a competition seeking nationally and internationally renowned architects to submit their design proposals which clearly demonstrate potential future uses for York’s historic Guildhall and riverside complex.

Registered architects are invited to develop their ideas for the Guildhall, the associated office accommodation, river frontage and boat yard, as part of an ‘Open Ideas’ competition, run by The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

Entries will be sought from architects putting forward innovative ideas on how the potential of the Guildhall site and riverside could be maximised for the benefit of the city and its residents.

A judging panel appointed to oversee the competition and choose a winner will include award winning and nationally renowned architect Keith Williams, chair of the jury panel and the RIBA advisor; City of York Council cabinet members Councillor Julie Gunnell, Cabinet member for Corporate Services and Cllr Dave Merrett, Cabinet Member for Transport, Planning and Sustainability; a city business representative and Darren Richardson, newly appointed director of City and Environmental Services at City of York Council, and also David Warburton, head of Design Conservation and Sustainable Development at City of York Council.

A wider group of key city stakeholders has also been appointed and includes business, academic, heritage and conservation specialists.

York Boat and the Civic Trust are sponsoring the competition and will be offering winning candidates the following cash prizes:

• 1st prize – £5,000
• 2nd prize – £3,000
• 3rd prize – £2,000
• 4th prize – £1,000
• 5th prize – £1,000
