A BRADFORD-based firm has been shortlisted for the Royal Institute of British Architects’ Beacon Project.

‘Beacon’ will be a travelling performance space and a platform for installations and live events across the district in 2025 – Bradford’s City of Culture year.

Faum Architecture, in association with GWP Architecture, Empace Structural Engineers and Bradford Moor Pass, is now preparing the next phase of the submission.

“We are truly honoured to be considered for this project and to collaborate with the Bradford community to create something extraordinary," said Fatima Mejbil, design Lead at FAUM Architecture.

"Our design philosophy centres around social value and inclusivity, ensuring that the Beacon becomes a vibrant hub where the community comes alive, and where the voices of the unheard find a platform to be heard.”

“For the past year, we have been collaborating with Faum Architecture on a number of opportunities and are delighted to be part of the team shortlisted to the final five for an amazing opportunity in Bradford”, said Richard Townend, Director at GWP Architecture.

James Mason, chief executive of the West & North Yorkshire Chamber, added: “It would be fabulous to see a local design collaboration deep-rooted in Bradford design this iconic project.”
