British stars battle it out in Cyprus

  • Comment
Some of the UK's leading architectural lights are to battle it out to design a new development in Cyprus.

The scheme is for an art gallery and supporting accommodation in the capital Nicosia, and will see the likes of David Chipperfield, Terry Pawson, Tony Fretton, Niall McLaughlin and Feilden Clegg Bradley Architects fighting it out.

The project is for a not-for-profit organisation called the AG Leventis Foundation, a private charity with a record of sponsoring educational programmes and major projects in the arts internationally.

The full shortlist includes six names from the UK and Cyprus, and was chosen from 76 expressions of interest.

The final six will now present to a judging panel in February, with a winner being announced shortly afterwards.

Anastasios Paul Leventis, chairman of the Leventis Foundation, said: 'The trustees were impressed by the quality and diversity of the response to this architectural competition and noted that the selection panel had difficulty in selecting six practices out of so strong a field.'

The full shortlist is as follows:

Chrysanthou & Papachristou Architects;

David Chipperfield Architects with J&A Philippou Architects Engineers;

Feilden Clegg Bradley Architects;

Tony Fretton Architects;

Niall McLaughlin Architects; and

Terry Pawson Architects.
