RIBA Competitions Office
This new two-stage open competition invites architects, engineers to design a new bridge to be built over a major route close to Sheffield City Centre. The bridge is to serve pedestrians, cyclists and equestrians.
The competition seeks the best designers and ideas for a new bridge to link a new industrial and residential area with an existing woodland park. Situated on the main route between the M1 and Sheffield City Centre, the bridge will become a point of reference for everyone using that route. With a life of at least 50 years it is hoped it will win a place in local affection and be a part of a positive shared memory of the City and the region. The bridge is to be procured in partnership with Rotherham Borough Council and Yorkshire Forward.
The competition is open internationally to teams led by either an architect or an engineer. Collaboration between disciplines is actively encouraged.
To register and receive a copy of the competition brief, please send a cheque for £35.00 (including VAT), payable to RIBA Competitions. Please note we do not have credit card facilities.
