Nottingham Architectural Contest

DESIGN COMPETITION PROVES THAT ARCHITECTURE IS NOTT FORGOTTEN

National funding has been secured for an innovative new design competition which will have competitors’ architectural ideas come to life in Nottingham city centre.

The Nott Forgotten challenge has been created by the Nottingham & Derby Society of Architects (NDSA) and will focus on five less cared for spaces in the Lace Market area of the city – located at St Mary’s Gate, Wing Walk, Hollowstone, Adam’s Walk and High Pavement.

Open to all architectural firms, universities and schools in the East Midlands, the society aims to inspire and involve the region’s creative minds – no matter what age or discipline. Participants will submit designs to transform an existing site and the winning designer will see their work made into a reality.

Matt Greenhalgh, president of the NDSA, has big plans for the competition and is pleased that the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) East Midlands has got behind the project.

“It’s very rare that regional competitions like this get national funding, this shows how unique Nott Forgotten is. The RIBA has dedicated a substantial portion of its regional funding to support the challenge. This is a huge achievement and is a sign of the good work the society is doing in contributing to the local community.

“Nott Forgotten gives participants the chance to actually make a change to the landscape of their city – which is very unusual in a local competition and makes the design challenge a really special project,” said Matt.

Almost 150 people attended a competition preview event in Nottingham to learn more about the chosen sites and the competition. Speaking at the preview evening, Kathy McArdle chief executive of the Creative Quarter, said: “The challenge that Nott Forgotten proposes is a medium-term intervention that can shift perception and the experience of space. Intervention to make the Lace Market feel safer, brighter, enjoyable, inviting, colourful, tell a story, celebrate history will open up the space’s social possibilities.

“Dream, imagine a design and make a design a reality for the public to engage with. This is a chance to imagine. Make the familiar landscape and streetspace shift in perception. Make it so that people never see it in quite the same way again.”

Award-winning artist, Wolfgang Buttress, who will be judging the competition’s entries, also commented: “I’m very exciting to be involved with the project and look forward to seeing the proposals.”

The NDSA has been running for almost 154 years and this will be its first running of a regional competition. The society is keen to encourage participants, at whatever level of architectural expertise, to get involved and make a difference in their local area.

“It’s crucial for the future of any industry to inspire the next generation and Nott Forgotten is a great platform to do this. It’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase the good that architecture can do and for people, young or old, to make a real difference,” added Matt.

Nott Forgotten, due to the nature of the project – as a physical change will be made to the city’s landscape, requires regional support from businesses.

“We’re keen to make the challenge a success but to do this we need financial backing.

“Suitable sponsorship packages are available, catering for SMEs up to large corporations, which give businesses the chance to increase brand awareness to those in the architectural industry, the East Midlands’ professionals and those in the education sector – as well as feeding into existing potential Corporate Social Responsibility strategies,” said Matt.

Nottinghamshire Architecture Competition – 11 Aug 2012
First stage winning proposal for Isover Multi-Comfort House Contest 2012, an international two-stage competition. The aim of the competition is to create regeneration and community development in Trent Basin, Nottingham, UK, which meet passive house requirements. Under the current economic pressure, cities are no longer able to develop the way they used to, especially in the regeneration of unused industrial areas, which have become increasingly in demand due to lack of housing and infrastructure. Although nearby, they represent disconnected areas from the city centers.
