RIBA Beacon Project Shortlist

GWPA are delighted to announce that our team has been shortlisted for the RIBA Beacon project, organised by Bradford 2025 UK City of Culture. The submission is a collaboration with Faum Architecture and is one of five proposals to have been shortlisted.

The RIBA-organised international competition sought  proposals for an ‘iconic travelling performance space’ to host performances, installations and live events during Bradford’s stint as UK City of Culture in 2025.

The proposed design is for an innovative and sustainable mobile venue that will become a beacon of cultural celebrations during 2025.The modular design will allow the performance space to be transported and erected at locations across Bradford to provide space for activities celebrating the city’s unique culture and history.

Bradford was announced winner of the UK City of Culture 2025 competition in May last year, defeating bids by County Durham, Southampton, and Wrexham County Borough.
