Hastings Pier Competition 1990

A national design competition organised by the Hastings Urban Conservation Project and sponsored by Hastings Borough Council, Building Design magazine and SE News. 114 entries were received, mostly from professional architects.

In 1990, dwindling receipts and rising repair costs sent the Hastings Pier Company cap in hand to the council, which came up with the idea of a national competition to see if anyone could design a scheme to revitalize the Pier. In association with Building Design magazine, the council offered £6,000 prize money.
