Design and Architecture

Sponsored by: Maber

Architecture submissions should be for a proposal located within Nottingham. It does not have to be a building; it could be a landscape design proposal or urban intervention for the city. Past winners have included interventions in derelict buildings, a school across the canal, sculptures in the Market Square and vertical farms for the city.

Design submissions should be inspired by, or relatable to Nottingham (for example its famous residents, its landscape and architecture or how you feel about Nottingham). Past winners have included pottery inspired by Byron, furniture inspired by Nottingham landmarks and light fittings, which have been inspired by Nottingham’s lace heritage. The opportunities are endless and there is no theme, so you can be super creative!

Your submission can be either physical or digital but should be no more than two A2 sheets. Digital entries should be high resolution PDF documents. You can also submit physical models as part of your entry. The online entry form must be completed and physical entries must be delivered to Loxley House, Station Street, NG2 3NG by 12noon on April 1st. (Monday – Friday between 9am and 5pm) the entrant must notify the YCA in advance that they are delivering the entries to Loxley House.
