Langdon Reis Zahn won open international design competition for new cultural buildings in Bodo

29 May 2008

Congratulations to our alumni Mr. Ross Langdon won an Open International Design Competition for a new Library and Theatre/Concert Hall in Bodo, Norway.

His collaborative Langdon Reis Zahn (London) have shared equal first prize with drdh Architects (London), General Architecture (Sweden) and Florian Hultsch (Germany). There were 94 entrants.

The first stage of the competition was an open ideas competition intended to clarify the location, massing and articulation of the built forms, composition and urban design of the adjacent site areas and public spaces.

The new cultural centre is projected to be approximately 11,700 sq.m. (126,000 square feet) with a construction budget of NOK 630,000,000 (132million AUD).

Langdon Reis Zahn, drdh Architects and General Architecture have been invited to participate in the second round of the competition, against 3 other invited contestants, which will determine the practice selected to build the theatre/concert hall and the library.
