City of York Council and its partners invite architectural submissions in response to this RIBA open ideas competition brief to re-imagine the City's historic Guildhall complex for the C21st and demonstrate how connecting river and City will facilitate a commercially viable renaissance of this unique site in a world class City.

The competition is being administered by RIBA Competitions, to whom any enquiries relating to the general conditions of this competition should be addressed.

Registered architects are invited to develop their ideas for the Guildhall, the associated office accommodation, river frontage and boat yard, as part of an 'Open Ideas' competition, run by The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Entries will be sought from architects putting forward innovative ideas on how the potential of the Guildhall site and riverside could be maximised for the benefit of the city and its residents.

A judging panel appointed to oversee the competition and choose a winner will include award-winning and nationally renowned architect Keith Williams, chair of the jury panel and the RIBA advisor; City of York Council cabinet members Councillor Julie Gunnell, Cabinet member for Corporate Services and Cllr Dave Merrett, Cabinet Member for Transport, Planning and Sustainability; a city business representative and Darren Richardson, newly appointed director of City and Environmental Services at City of York Council, and also David Warburton, head of Design Conservation and Sustainable Development at City of York Council.

A wider group of key city stakeholders has also been appointed and includes business, academic, heritage and conservation specialists.

York Boat and the Civic Trust are sponsoring the competition and will be offering winning candidates the following cash prizes:

1st prize - £5,000 
2nd prize - £3,000 
3rd prize - £2,000
