G4 COMPETITION 2001
Edinburgh Park

Winner: Campbell & Arnott
Runner-up: Gordon Murray + Alan Dunlop Architects
NEW EDINBURGH LTD, developer of Edinburgh Park, invited architects in Scotland to submit design ideas for a £2m office building. The offices were to incorporate an innovative marketing suite for NEL.

Review of Exhibition held at Edinburgh University:
Everyone from Ushida Findlay to Keppie Architects here: don’t miss the wild overhangs of Duffy & Batt(far right), the trendy Dutch folds of ATA Studio, or – by the door – the spaceship of Watson Burnett Architects, surely a joke entry. Considered and innovative schemes from the likes of Sutherland Hussey Architects, Oliver Chapman, Gordon Murray + Alan Dunlop, Richard Murphy (left), Andrea Faed, Malcolm Fraser Architects and CIAO.
