Chipperfield, AZPA and Foster vie for Spanish infrastructure jackpots

Foster + Partners, Richard Rogers, David Chipperfield and AZPA are flying the British flag in two Spanish railway projects worth £86 million

Run by Spain’s Ministry of Development, the design competitions are part of a project to build a new High Speed ​​Line between Madrid and Galicia with terminal stations at Orense and Santiago de Compostela.

Alejandro Zaera-Polo Architecture (AZPA) is shortlisted in both contests. The company is working on the £600 million redevelopment of Birmingham’s New Street station and was established in June following Alejandro Zaera-Polo’s decision to leave Foreign Office Architects.  

Foster and Partners, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, AZPA and four Spanish companies are shortlisted for a project to redevelop the Orense train station (pictured) which has a budget of €67.5 million.

David Chipperfield Architects and AZPA are shortlisted along with five Spanish studios to design the Santiago de Compostela rail terminal worth €29.4 million. The 4,500m² project will feature six platforms, a bus station and 500 parking spaces.
