The annual Basil Spence project is our flagship design competition for final-year architecture and civil engineering students. Lucie, Dom, Jack, Holly and Rory's design for a new south stand at Bath Rugby Ground features a flowing open concourse and a roof inspired by Bath Abbey. Flexible consultation rooms allow the site to be used outside of match fixtures.
