As part of the Institute’s on-going commitment to profile RIBA Competition winning entries, Theis + Khan were invited to present the Bat & Ball winning entry to design a civic and community Centre for Sevenoaks Town Council. Held in the RIBA’s HQ building at 66 Portland Place, the exhibition will travel to promote its message below as well as the participating practices nationally and internationally.
Our mission is to evidence the role of best practice competitions in uncovering fresh ideas needed to meet the world’s most important urban challenges. In particular, it will reflect on three critical themes emerging from the United Nations’ New Urban Agenda for delivering sustainable urban development:
1. A sense of belonging: architects’ agency in creating a cohesive society
2. Safe, affordable and sustainable housing: how architects can influence client choices
3. Protecting the cultural heritage: deploying architects’ design vision to unlock economic and community value for clients
