The Adelaide Contemporary International Design Competition is a global search for an outstanding design team to create a new cultural destination for Australia. Adelaide Contemporary will showcase an exceptional collection of international and Australian, including Aboriginal, art. It will benefit from a strategic site on the city’s cultural boulevard and combine a contemporary gallery with a public sculpture park and meeting place. Adelaide Contemporary will extend the concept of an art destination and combine new public and cultural features, creating an accessible community meeting place and integrating art, education, nature and people.
This two-stage international competition is seeking architect-led creative teams with an initial open call for Expressions of Interest. Following this, up to six teams will be selected to develop a concept design at the second stage. These teams will need to include an architect registered with the Australian Institute of Architects. An honorarium of AU$90,000 will be paid to each of the shortlisted teams at Stage Two.
To enter, competitors will need to read the Competition Conditions, fill out an online form and upload documents detailing their company information, proposed team composition and relevant experience, and project understanding and approach. The deadline for responses is 21:30 ACDT / 11:00 GMT Friday 24 November 2017.
