Сессей (Sessay) – небольшое поселение в 20 км от Йорка. Организаторы конкурса ищут команду дизайнеров и архитекторов, которые создадут здесь новый общественный центр и спортивный павильон. Эти площадки разместятся на территории в 4,5 га и должны стать «сердцем» деревни, вписываться в окружающий ландшафт, восхищать как гостей, так и постоянных пользователей.

Sessay is a small rural community on the North East edge of the Vale of York approximately 20 miles North of York. The client is seeking a talented multi-disciplinary design team to achieve their vision of an exemplary, bold, distinctive and elegant new community hub of lasting quality consisting of a community hall and sports pavilion set in a well designed landscape including playing fields. The existing community hall and pavilion located in the centre of the village is poorly designed, thermally inefficient and coming to the end of its useful life, parking, servicing, landscaping and infrastructure around the current building is generally dysfunctional and unattractive. New facilities are required to meet the future demands of the community and to cater for increasing numbers of visitors as evidenced by recent public consultations (see Sessay & Hutton Sessay Community Plan 2014). The village has a history of commissioning buildings of quality such as the church, school and housing by William Butterfield in the 19th Century and wishes to continue this tradition.
The competition site comprises 2 elements:
1. Land donated in 1971 and forming the current cricket field, bowling green, play area, village hall and parking - around 5 acres in total.
2. Arable farm land to the NE which is to be purchased following the design competition - up to 6 acres based on agreed Heads of Terms. If design teams can accommodate the clients needs using a smaller area this will help them to reduce their costs. At present most of the funds necessary to purchase the additional land have already been secured.
For the purposes of the Design Competition the site is to be regarded as a contiguous whole. The new community hub must read as a single homogeneous place, it should be welcoming, confident and durable in its design; it must be in harmony with its landscape and village context. The design of the building and sport infrastructure should enhance the heart of the village; it must excite and impress both users and visitors. The design should optimise views across 2 cricket fields (one existing and one to be located on purchased land), the bowling green and other facilities, allowing users to benefit from spectacular views across country to the Hambleton Hills and the White Horse of Kilburn.
