Acle Bridge Design Competition

This Competition is now closed.

Shortlisted notified - Friday 8th June 2018

The applicants not selected for Stage 2 were notified on Monday 11th June 2018.

The Broads Authority’s ambition is to commission and build an outstanding visitor centre for its site at Acle Bridge. A landmark building is essential for this sensitive site to create a new visitor attraction for the national park and raise the profile of the area’s special qualities. It will engage the public in the big issues: the importance of managing water, climate change and sea level rise, the need for sustainability to be at the heart of building in the Broads and the provision of fantastic facilities for visitors, local residents and schoolchildren.

In order to promote innovation and modern, high-quality design the Authority is running an architectural competition for architects and architect-led practices for the initial concept designs. Further details are available in the brief.
