BBC Scotland has announced that it is staging an international competition for architects to design its first digital headquarters building at Pacific Quay on the Clyde in Glasgow. Architects are being asked to pitch to win a place on a six-strong shortlist to compete for the final design. Among others, the competition jury will include Broadcasting Council for Scotland chairman Sir Robert Smith and David Mackay, a partner of MBM Arquitectes in Barcelona, one of Europe's leading urban design companies. The project, which is expected to cost about£30m, is still dependent on planning approval and work is scheduled to start by spring 2002 with staff due to move from the present cramped premises in late 2004.
