The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland has been commissioned by Falkirk Council to manage an important competition to select an architect-led, multi disciplinary, team.
The competition is for the design of the internal space within a giant sculpture of a horse’s head. The structure will be set within one of two horses head sculptures, ‘The Kelpies’, by world renowned sculptor, Andy Scott. The competition also seeks the design of a complementary visitor hub on the same site. 9 Nov 2011
