Earlier this week, RIBA’s judging panel shortlisted 19 schemes from 60 submitted entries in the Forgotten Spaces Sheffield Competition.
The shortlist includes a range of innovative, far reaching and practical ideas of how to put to use overlooked or ‘forgotten’ sites in our city.
The judging panel included: David Bickle, director of London-based architectural practice Hawkins Brown; Rory Olcayto, deputy editor of the Architects Journal; Miles Price, from British Land; Norman Wienand, head of architecture and planning at Sheffield Hallam University; Emma England, director of RIBA Yorkshire; and Simon Green, director of place at Sheffield City Council.
Speaking about the shortlist for the Sheffield competition, David Bickle said:
‘I was really pleased by the range of ideas we received for the Sheffield competition and I am satisfied the diversity of the entries has been reflected in our shortlist. It was obvious entries had come from a variety of sources – architects, designers, artists – and our final 19 really reflect that creative mix.’
