Larbert Loch Design Competition Exhibition
27 April – 14 June 2013
Forth Valley Royal Hospital
Larbert, FK5 4WR
In 2012 Architecture and Design Scotland, NHS Forth Valley and the Forestry Commission Scotland collaborated on the Larbert Loch Design Competition. This limited design competition for small and emerging design practices was aimed at creating a permanent viewing platform at Forth Valley Royal Hospital – a destination for the enjoyment of patients, staff and visitors to this landmark site.
The judging panel was delighted by the number of entries submitted and from the 31 stage one entries, five projects were shortlisted for further design development. The competition sought to showcase the potential of locally sourced materials while also creating a destination that would provide access to the loch side and that staff, patients and the local population could enjoy.
This touring exhibition presents the long list of competition entries, the development of the 5 shortlisted projects and finally showcases the winning design.
The exhibition will also be shown in The Lighthouse in the Autumn 2013.
