GOVERNMENT’S Houses of Parliament (Architectural) Design Competition People’s Choice Exhibition, which is currently underway at the National Gallery of Jamaica in downtown Kingston, will end on February 28.

The exhibit forms part of a People’s Choice voting mechanism that will determine which of the five designs on display will win the competition’s People’s Choice Award in March after the contest ends.

The exhibition showcases the three-dimensional models; animated videos and detailed conceptual drawings submitted by the top five architectural design teams in the Houses of Parliament Design Competition – a methodology launched by the Urban Development Corporation (UDC) on behalf of the Government in May 2018.

The UDC, managers of the competition, has partnered with the National Gallery to provide free entry to the gallery on Saturdays which fall within the exhibition period (February 2, 9, 16 and 23). The National Gallery also provides free entry for children and students with valid IDs. The standard $400 entry fee for adults and $200 for seniors remains in effect for all other days with the exception of the gallery’s free entry offering every last Sunday.

Voting will be facilitated locally and in the diaspora via a customised SMS platform where persons can text the design code of their preferred design (ie, HOP1, HOP2, HOP3, HOP4 or HOP5) to 1-876-399-4774 and also via the competition’s website www.ourjaparliament.com – during the exhibition period.

The creative pieces on exhibition were submitted on December 18, 2018 by the five shortlisted design teams led by Jamaican architects Damian Edmond of Form Architects; Evan Williams of Design Collaborative Architects and Town Planners; Ravi Sittol of Atelier-Vidal Limited and Adjaye Associates Limited; Stephen Facey of the National Flower Team and Guenet Anderson of GSA-Architects and Planners Limited.

Each of the five teams participated in individual 45-minute sessions between January 14 and 16 where they presented to the competition’s esteemed panel of jurors comprising professionals within the built environment. The panel of jurors, appointed ahead of the competition by the parliamentary steering committee with oversight for the project, includes Mark Raymond (jury chair); Christopher Lue; Jacquiann Lawton; Richard Picart; Dr Elizabeth Pigou-Dennis; Dwight Ricketts; and Martin Addington.

A formal announcement of the winning architectural design, runner-ups and winner of the People’s Choice Award is expected in March.
