A design competition has been announced to generate ideas for a nuclear power station project in West Cumbria. Designers from across the world are being ask to draw up architecture and landscape ideas for NuGen’s Moorside nuclear development. As Europe’s largest new nuclear power station, the project will include three AP1000 reactors next to the Sellafield site. Two competitions have now been commissioned each with a £25,000 prize fund to generate ‘iconic’ designs at Moorside. One of the competitions is being run by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and is open to all qualified architects. It will seek designs for various buildings including a visitor centre for the main site, an accommodation block and an overall site plan.
