Storylines Design Competition

  • What is the Storylines design competition?

    We’re working with the Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA) (link opens in new window) and sponsors JP Corry (link opens in new window) to challenge early career architects to submit creative proposals for the temporary use of the site which will become part of our £100m landmark visitor attraction, Belfast Stories, in 2028.

    The Storylines Design Competition 2022 is offering the winning architect, or team of architects a budget of up to £120,000 (including up to £30,000 professional fees), a mentorship and the chance to see their concept for a temporary use become a reality at this key city centre site by December 2022 (subject to a range of approvals, including planning).

    RSUA has been running design competitions annually for early career architects since 2016, with a cycle alternating between an ideas-only competition and a competition that aspires to deliver a built project.

    The deadline for submissions was 5pm on 30 March, 2022.
