Irena Bauman has been invited to this event to be hosted by The City of Roskilde and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde. The symposium is being staged to consider issues relating to identity and the production of difference in new suburban developments. The purpose of the symposium is to position and contextualise this work within a wider international debate, making links to other practice and projects. 16 international practitioners from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines from Denmark and abroad, are to contribute to this important emerging debate. Officers and practitioners who have been involved in the Trekroner Art Plan will also contribute.
Bauman Lyons are one of six architects shortlisted to design a new museum and library for Castleford. The development will replace the town’s current old library and museum room with modern facilities, creating a centre for local people and visitors and celebrating Castleford as a Roman settlement and the birthplace of world-famous sculptor Henry Moore. Councillor Peter Box, Leader of Wakefield Council and Chair of the Jury Panel said: “The shortlist to design this flagship building combines the very best of experienced and up and coming architects in the country, who have all developed innovative and inspirational designs. This is a very exciting time for Castleford, a town centre where major regeneration is already happening, with more on the horizon”. Managed by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) the design competition received over 60 entrants from across the world, all eager to be involved in what is a key building in the £50m regeneration of the town centre.
