Submissions are invited for design ideas for the re-development and regeneration of a historic market in the Hereford.
The competition is being organised by RIBA Competitions on behalf of Herefordshire Council in partnership with Advantage West Midlands.
Hereford Buttermarket has been trading since 1860, and is centrally placed at the heart of the city centre, with access from the main pedestrianised High Street.
Trading includes a wide range of goods typical of many city centre markets.
In order for the market to survive, and thrive, major refurbishment and reconfiguration is needed.
Competitors will be required to come up with ideas for how the market can be used in a more flexible and multi-functional way that will enhance the retail environment and provide a long-term sustainable future for the Buttermarket building.
The competition is open to architects and collaboration with other disciplines such as interior designers is encouraged.
The deadline for submissions is May 20, 2010.
