RIBA invites members to submit projects exemplifying the advancement of circular economy design principles to be displayed at 66 Portland Place, London from early 2023. Complementing the recent launch of RIBA’s new exhibition Long Life, Low Energy: Designing for the circular economy, up to 12 winning entries will be showcased in the First Floor Gallery, running for approximately two to three months.

The open call begins 16 November 2022 and will close at 9am 12 December 2022. The judging panel will be chaired by RIBA Board Member Jo Bacon, alongside a member of the RIBA curatorial team. All entrants will receive an invitation to the opening event for the open call show.

Members can submit projects completed during 2022 under one or more of the following headings:

  1. Buildings that use sustainable or recycled materials as core construction components in built environments
  2. Buildings that are self-sufficient or net positive in energy consumption buildings
  3. Buildings that are demountable and no longer linear in terms of lifespan, with materials and components allowing for future re-use
  4. Buildings that have successfully been re-configured structures for reuse without the need for demolition

Entrants should submit one photograph, one drawing and one paragraph of text (100 words max) describing the project and the importance in relation to circular economy principles. Please see the open call webpage for detailed entry information and submission requirements.

Entries should be sent by email to exhibitions@riba.org
