Design Challenge:

The competition master plan will include the design of new facilities integrated with the campus’s Maidwell building. The Master Plan should envision the development of the campus as it grows over the next 15-20 years, embracing short-term accommodation needs and longer term plans for growth in Arts, Sciences and Technology provision, community and business engagement.

The competition gives entrants the opportunity to influence the approach to contemporary planning, architecture, sustainability and energy efficiency. The ideas generated by the competition will illustrate the potential of the site and inform long term strategic planning.
