One of the shortlisted entries for the RIBA design competition.

The shortlisted ideas were selected by an independent panel of experts, including Sir Terry Farrell (the British architect and urban designer famous for work including the MI6 Building in London) and Paul Tiplady (former Chief Executive of the Lake District National Park Authority).

NuGen CEO, Tom Samson, said: “We have had an overwhelming response to the competition, both in terms of numbers and the level of creativity in the designs.

“The architecture and landscape community have embraced the challenge and have delivered some thoughtful, considered and visually breath-taking proposals for our Moorside Project. We’ve narrowed the entries down to five - but we’re very keen to hear what the public think of our selection.”
