A GLOBAL search has started to find the people to design a new nuclear power plant. NuGen has launched a competition to create a vision for its proposed site at Moorside, near Sellafield. It is the first time this kind of competition has been staged in the nuclear industry. It is split into two sections. One, run by the Royal Institute of British Architects, is open to all qualified architects and seeks imaginative designs for the site including a visitor centre, an accommodation block and masterplan. The second, for landscape architects and run by the Landscape Institute, aims to find the most creative and sustainable solutions for providing the setting for the Moorside development.
