Britain's Norman Foster, US-based Richard Meier and Kevin Roche and Japan's Fumihiko Maki have made it onto the shortlist for a new United Nations headquarters building in New York. Unusually the competition - for a new 90,000m2 office - was open only to the 23 past recipients of the Pritzker Prize. According to the New York Times, some of the practices were eliminated in the first stage of the competition, while others - including Robert Venturi, Frank Gehry and IM Pei - chose not to compete.
