Brits miss out in Croydon urban design contest

  • Comment

Teams led by Edward Cullinan Architects and Hawkins\Brown have missed out in the international contest to design a major traffic route through Croydon, south London

The shortlisted duo failed to make it into the final two in the competition to redesign the Wellesley Road and Park Lane area - which includes the six-lane A212 – at the heart of Will Alsop’s masterplan for the town centre.

Croydon Borough Council, Design for London and the London Development Agency, have instead named two overseas practices as its frontrunners for the £50 million urban design project.

The finalists are:

- US-based Field Operations with, among others, Buro Happold

- Dutch landscape architect OKRA with Peter Brett Associates, Urhahn Urban Design and London’s Karakusevic Carson Architects.

A winner is expected to be announced in July.
