Architecture studio launches design competition to find more creative project in Yorkshire

Award winning art and architecture studio Wignall and Moore has launched a competition to find the most innovative and creative projects in Yorkshire.

Friday, 5th February 2021, 4:45 pm

The contest is looking for best client briefs and architectural proposals that will enhance, showcase and celebrate the culturally rich heritage of the county.

Submissions will be judged by an expert panel including Leeds City Council’s executive board member for inclusive growth and culture, Coun Judith Blake, director of Harewood House Trust, Jane Marriott, and deputy director of Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Helen Featherstone.

Wignall and Moore’s James Wignall, who is originally from Harrogate, said: “This is our opportunity to really explore some striking concepts and innovative design, right on our doorstep. Whether you’re a business in need of a new premises, the owner of a heritage asset in need of restoration or an arts organization looking to make a splash, we’re looking for entries that will challenge conventional design concepts and inspire the future against a backdrop of history.”

The competition offers the chance to win a design concept worth up to £10,000. Moore added: “This will include a full site study, client workshop, planning investigation, design drawings and 3D visualisation of your project. In short, we will act as your advisors to develop your design and bring tangible detail to your plans. Four runners up will also benefit from a design consultation.”

Entries should include a brief description of the project, including location, visual material, and background information of how the project will enhance what Yorkshire has to offer.
