Top tender pick of the week:
The IHBC Director’s pick from the HESPR News and Tender Alert for this week is a call from Architecture & Design Scotland announcing a distinctly different opportunity to make the case for conservation: ‘The Scotland + Venice partnership invites proposals from a supplier, “the creative team”, to develop and deliver a unique project for the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, Venice. The commission provides an exciting opportunity for a creative team to engage with one of the most prestigious international showcases for architecture in the world. The team should provide a strong narrative, critical position and approach to working with children and young people and the International Architecture Exhibition theme ‘Freespace’.’
The work is valued at £59,000, and closes 11 September.
