The Council of the City of Gold Coast will open Gold Coast Cultural Precinct Design Competition on 26 March with the launch of a new project website. The two-stage competition is open to international teams and is expected to attract some of the world’s top architects and landscape architects.
“They will compete for the opportunity to design a landmark cultural ‘heart and soul’ on 11 hectares of the stunning Evandale site on Australia’s Gold Coast. Council’s vision for the site includes a Living Arts Centre, for performing arts and cinema; a New Arts Museum for media, art and design; a stunning outdoor garden Artscape and a green bridge to adjacent Chevron Island.” the Mayor said
Council this week endorsed the schedule for the two-stage competition.
Stage one, from 26 March, will provide competitors with six weeks to develop and submit proposals that include a high-level design response and outline their team’s capability. An independent expert jury will assess submissions.
Stage two, over 12 weeks from 18 June, during which up to three short-listed teams will each be paid AUD$250,000 to further develop their responses. The jury will then select a winner to work with Council to deliver the cultural precinct.
