Description
The University Cambridge Department of Architecture and the Cambridge University Library invites you to take part in an innovative design competition in Cambridge to elicit fresh and unexpected ideas for the environment, landscape and entrance sequence to the University Library. The competition aims actively to encourage creative and unconventional approaches to the challenging brief of responding to the imposing architecture of the Library in order to bring about a transformation of its external environment. This is a two stage, open ideas competition for a site that is integral to the life of the University.
In order to realise this vision and foster cross community engagement, a panel of assessors from a range of disciplines, backgrounds, ages and sectors will organise workshops and events, and select prize winning ideas and designs, which will form the basis for a public exhibition, local schools campaign and publication to exemplify commitment to environmental design at Cambridge.
