The Ross Pavilion International Design Competition focuses on regenerating and renewing an emblematic site at the heart of West Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh, which is presently occupied by the Ross Bandstand. This nationally-important space, positioned below Edinburgh Castle in the UNESCO World Heritage site, is the seasonal focus for some of Scotland’s most high-profile events, notably Hogmanay and the International Festival’s closing fireworks.

The Ross Development Trust seeks an outstanding multi-disciplinary team for the £25m project to: design a new landmark Pavilion to replace the Bandstand; design a visitor centre with café; and to subtly update and improve the surrounding landscape. The initiative is intended to create a flexible contemporary venue, which is sensitive to context and historic setting, and one where both residents and visitors can engage with a variety of cultural events all year round.
