The Royal Institute of British Architects have announced an international design competition to regenerate Centenary Square, one of Birmingham's largest public spaces, and neighbor to Birmingham's International Convention Centre, the Old Rep Theatre, and the the Library of Birmingham by Mecanoo which was shortlisted for the 2014 Stirling Prize

The contest was borne out of a desire to animate the plaza beyond its current use as a space for outdoor concerts and large-scale public events. Birmingham City Council has partnered with RIBA on the contest which is open to architects, landscape architects, urban designers, and students from around the world. The competition for Centenary Square follows the reopening of the Library of Birmingham in March 2013, charging designers to pay tribute to the vibrant structure. 

RIBA will select five finalists who will each receive £5,000 and an invitation to present their designs for a public panel in March 2015. Submissions are due in digital form by 2 December at 2pm GMT. More information and specific contest details are available online at RIBA Competitions.
