Adam Khan makes Gloucester shortlist in bid for yet more competition success
The London-based practice, which has won two major RIBA contests in less than a year, including the Brockholes wetland and woodland nature reserve in Lancashire (pictured), has teamed up on this bid with Land Use Consultants and General Public Agency.
The firm is rubbing shoulders with likes of Niall McLaughlin Architects (with Churchman Landscape Architects), McDowell + Benedetti Architects (with Whitelaw Turkington Landscape Architects) and Gustafson Porter.
Italian firm Federico Oliva Associati & DA-A and London’s Townshend Landscape Architects complete the six-strong shortlist vying to overhaul Gloucester largest public square – part of Gloucester Heritage Urban Regeneration Company King’s Quarter masterplan, which aims deliver 30,000m2 of new shops and 250 city-centre flats by 2012.
The company asked for a ‘design that is creative and practical, respects the city's historic context and at the same time creates a thrilling and distinctive contemporary sense of place’.
