London Bridge 800 - Design an Inhabited Bridge

London Bridge 800: Design an Inhabited Bridge

The RIBA announced the launch of an ideas competition which is being organised to mark the 800th anniversary of the opening of the first London Bridge in 1209AD.

Old London Bridge was an inhabited bridge and the competition asks today's designers to imagine a new version of the inhabited bridge, based on the present structure.

The result of the competition will be announced at the 800th Anniversary Fair of London Bridge on Saturday 11 July by The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor of London.

Winning and selected entries from the competition will also be publicised as part of the anniversary celebrations.

The competition is open to architects and students of architecture.

The deadline for submissions is 25th June.
