Designers from South Australia, interstate and around the world will be invited to submit ideas for the current Royal Adelaide Hospital site as part of a competition to be held by the State Government.
Design competitions have been held for developments around the world including Spencer Street Station and Federation Square in Melbourne.
This month’s State Budget provided $1.5 million for a design process for the future of the Royal Adelaide Hospital site.
Premier Jay Weatherill today announced the competition, following the release this week of the Greater Riverbank Precinct Implementation Plan, which brings together a revitalised Bonython Park, biomedical precinct, entertainment precinct and the current Royal Adelaide Hospital site.
The Royal Adelaide Hospital site provides a unique opportunity and challenge for Adelaide,” Mr Weatherill said.
Its heritage buildings are central part of the institutional precinct on North Terrace.
We want the best ideas we can gather for how to replace the hospital when it moves to its new home in 2016.
We also want to make sure that the community has a big say in our decisions.
Seven members with a majority being experts in the field of architecture, landscape architecture and urban design

At the end of Stage 2, the competition winner will receive AU$200,000, the second prize winner AU$70,000 and third prize winner AU$30,000.
