underway for "UNBUILT YORKSHIRE" Exhibition.
A range of Yorkshire building schemes
that never saw the light of day will be on view for the first
time at a one-off exhibition.
Architects, artists, landscape architects and clients have until 7th
February to send in their projects for the "Unbuilt
Yorkshire 1975-2000" showcase
exhibition, which will feature wide-ranging ventures often referred
to by their originators as missed opportunities.
The projects will be a combination of schemes which never got off the
ground or which changed so dramatically that the built scheme
could not be recognised from the original proposals. It is hoped to
exhibit some of the missed opportunities that could have enriched the
county. Only the public visiting can judge whether any were close escapes!
A selection panel including John Edwards, Regional Chairman of the RIBA,
Martin Wainright of the Guardian and Andy Coyne of Yorkshire Insider
will choose 25 schemes to be included in the exhibition.
Initial submissions in the form of brief descriptions and examples of
drawings should be sent to the RIBA (8, Woodhouse Square, Leeds, LS3
1AD) by Friday 7 February 2003.
The exhibition is a key feature of this years "4x4
making places 2003" urban regeneration
forum which takes place every Thursday in March at the Leeds Metropolitan
University School of Architecture starting at 6pm.
