DESIGNERS WANTED TO SUBMIT IDEAS FOR NEW BRISTOL ARENA

An international competition has been launched to design a new arena in Bristol.

The 12,000-capacity indoor venue will be built on a site close to Temple Meads railway station, on a former diesel depot.

Expected to open in 2017, the £90 million music arena is to be located in the heart of the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.

Companies wishing to run the venue have already been invited to bid for a 25-year lease on the building. 

Bristol City Council and the Royal Institute of British Architects will select the winning design. The closing date for entries is 18th September.
