SIX GO INCOGNITO IN THE FOREST
These are the first images of the shortlisted schemes in the Sherwood Forest Visitor Complex competition. Designs by Niall McLaughlin Architects and Ken Shuttleworth's practice, Make, are among the six anonymous proposals that are about to go on public display around Nottinghamshire. The other four firms battling it out to land the £50 million project are Glenn Howells Architects, Richard Murphy Architects, Patel Taylor, and Wilkinson Eyre. The winning scheme will become the centrepiece of the Sherwood Forest: Living Legend bid, which will be submitted by Nottinghamshire Council in an attempt to bag a substantial cash handout from the Big Lottery Fund's Living Landmarks grant programme. All six finalists have already been given a £4,000 honorarium and the RIBA's Competitions Office expects to announce the eventual winner early next year.
