the finalists were unanimously selected by the competition’s jury panel which includes wandsworth council leader ravi govindia, lambeth councillor joanne simpson, architect graham stirk, engineer henry bardsley and chair of cabe at design council pam alexander.

 

‘I want to thank the jury panel and all of the designers who took part and made this such an exciting process,’ said councilor ravi govindia in a statement. ‘the quality of the submissions went beyond our best expectations and the interest this competition has generated across london has been tremendous. congratulations to our shortlisted teams and I look forward to seeing their initial ideas developed further. the devil will be in the detail and the next stage will show us whether these four highly skilled and innovative design teams can meet the complex challenges this project presents.’

 

wandsworth council expects to announce the winning team in the late autumn of 2015.

  • Bystrup with Robin Snell & Partners is a lovely proposal. Grace with elegance in its simplicity and symmetry.
