Birmingham Jewellery Quarter shortlist announced

  • Comment
Three Birmingham-associated firms, Capita Lovejoy, Arup and FIRA Landscape are named on the shortlist to design a new £1.5 million public square in the city's Jewellery Quarter

Planit Intelligent Environments, Page\Park and Barton Willmore make up the shortlist announced by Birmingham City Council for the ’Golden Square’ project, which is part of the Big City Plan. The jurors included RIBA president-elect Ruth Reed, Andrew Taylor of Patel Taylor and Kathryn Moore, a past president of the Landscape Institute.

The public space will accommodate markets, exhibitions and events. The practices have until April to submit detailed design proposals. A public display of the proposals will then take place and visitor’s feedback will inform the final decision.
