Aberdeen City Gardens calls for redesign proposals

The Aberdeen City Garden project is calling for designers and architects to submit proposals on redesigning a 6ha site in the centre of Aberdeen.


The space incorporates the 19th-century Union Terrace Gardens, Denburn dual carriageway and railway line; and it is hoped the area will be transformed into a safe, accessible civic garden that draws on Aberdeen’s heritage, according to Malcolm Reading Consultants, which is managing the competition on behalf of the City Garden Project Management Board.

The £140m public realm competition is open to teams including an urban designer, architect, structural, civil and services engineering, landscape architect and cost consultant.

Proposals will be expected to put forward a solution that rationalises existing road and railway links, integrating the Union Street retail and business thoroughfare with existing cultural attractions and providing the context for a new contemporary arts centre.

The deadline for applications is 13 June, from which a shortlist of five to seven will be chosen to work up paid concept propositions.

The shortlist will be announced in the week beginning 18 July, with the winning team announced this December.
