HAMILTON MAUSOLEUM DESIGN COMPETITION
項目介紹 PROJECT BACKGROUND
從M74公路上可以看到的當地標誌性建築漢密斯頓陵墓，該建築是小鎮最具標誌性的建築之一。它位於大衛·布萊斯（ David Bryce ）設計的斯特拉斯克萊德郊野公園中，是漢密爾頓第十公爵的家庭墓地，漢密爾頓的妻子蘇珊·貝克福德（ Susan Beckford ）繼承了祖先積累的藝術品收藏權，這一切歸功於他們在牙買加擁有的糖園。
該建築以整體式基座和門廊為中心，帶有圓形大廳和圓頂。入口處有亞歷山大·漢迪賽·裡奇（ Alexander Handyside Ritchie ）出色的獅子雕塑。內部裝飾大理石地板，並以其15秒回聲而聞名。守護者小屋位於東北，通過一條服務隧道與陵墓相連。

AN IDEAS COMPETITION TO HELP SECURE THE FUTURE OF THE A-LISTED MONUMENT
A local landmark, visible from the M74, it is one of the town’s most iconic buildings. Located in Strathclyde Country Park, and designed by David Bryce, it was built as a family tomb for the 10th Duke of Hamilton, whose wife Susan Beckford inherited the art collection amassed by her ancestors through their ownership of sugar plantations in Jamaica.
The building features a monolithic plinth and portico holding the rotunda and dome with a central oculus. The entrance is marked by remarkable lion sculptures by Alexander Handyside Ritchie. The interior has a decorative marble floor and is renowned for its 15 second echo. The Keeper’s Lodge sits to the north east, connected to the Mausoleum by a services tunnel.
The Hamilton Mausoleum Trust was established in 2019 to promote the need for urgent repairs to both the Mausoleum and the Keeper’s Lodge and to secure the future of these historic assets. In 2020 South Lanarkshire Council pledged to undertake the urgent repair of the Hamilton Mausoleum as part of the council’s capital programme for 2020/21. This will help preserve the historic attraction from visible signs of water damage by allowing the replacement of the lead and guttering on both the flat roofs and dome.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- Are team entries acceptable? Yes, they are.
- I am an architectural assistant, can I purchase a student ticket? Only those with an active student email can register for the student fee.
- Does the entry fee change for a team entry? No, only one registration is required for a team entry.
- Are we allowed to add decoration on the wall? ( Like sculptures that link back to history ) Yes
- According to the site plan, we assumed the plan also shows the boundary and scale of the site. Does the boundary of the site flexible? ( We also want to include the parking lot at the north of the mausoleum ) Yes
- Are we able to add architectures like Pavillion or tunnel on the site? Are we allowed to dig holes on the wall of the mausoleum? Yes
- There are no drawing of the below ground level of the mausoleum, is this area excluded from the competition ( eg. no proposals for this area )? The basement crypt is not excluded from the competition. Indeed, it is an important space and is the level from which there is a duct from the mausoleum furnace to the chimney on the Keeper’s Cottage. Lockdown prohibited access to archive drawings but in the event that a plan of the crypt can be sourced, it will be reproduced and uploaded to the competition website.
- The site map shows an area around the mausoleum/lodge, is there a site boundary for potential proposals or is the area shown in the site plan all useable ( within reason )? There are no set limits or boundaries for the competition, and we would encourage participants to find innovative ways to integrate the structures into both the park setting and its urban context.
