Architecture Competition Announced

Architects – we need you!

For the first time in MCDC’s exhibition history, our eyes are turning towards spatial design and architectural brilliance.

Working with RIBA North West and its Members, we are running our first open design competition. We are inviting North West architects, RIBA Chartered Architects, and students of architecture to look at our challenging central exhibition space with fresh eyes, showcasing their creativity in a unique setting.

The winning structure will be constructed on our exhibition stage. This is a unique and exciting opportunity for a designer or team to transform the small and often awkward space into a vibrant new temporary installation.

This competition is not only for ideas – the winning proposal will be commissioned for construction and exhibited at MCDC for three months.

Deadline for submissions: Friday 31/10/14, 5pm.
