Cowes Harbour Landmark Design Competition
The Cowes Harbour Landmark Design Competition has been launched to find an inspirational design idea for an iconic “welcome” landmark to be sited on the detached Cowes Breakwater at the mouth of Cowes Harbour on the Isle of Wight.
Organisers Cowes Harbour Commission have created this free-to-enter competition for students across the Isle of Wight aged between 14 and 18 years old. Students are being asked to come up with an exciting design idea for a prominent and striking piece of artwork, sculpture, installation, or architectural fabrication to go on the 350 metre long manmade Cowes Breakwater.
Entries to the competition should be submitted to Cowes Harbour Commission by 1700hrs on Friday, 11th January 2019. An exhibition of the short-listed entries is due to be held in Cowes, prior to an Awards Ceremony in March 2019 where the final winners will be announced. Prizes will include a day trip to the London Design Museum, art materials, and a boat trip around Cowes Harbour. There are plans for the winning design or designs to be re-worked by an art, design or engineering team for a semi-permanent or permanent installation (finance dependent) on the Breakwater in the future.
