Fletcher Priest makes Brussels shortlist

A team led by Fletcher Priest Architects has been shortlisted in the competition to restructure the European Quarter in Belgian capital Brussels.

The London practice's team, which also includes Arup, Davis Langdon and Belgian firm WIT Architekten, will face four other teams, led by French architect Christian de Portzamparc, Dutch firm OMA, Belgian practice Xaveer de Geyter Architecten, and joint Danish and Belgian office JDS Architects.

The competition, organised by the Brussels-Capital Ministry, is to double the density of a 13ha site at the heart of the European District, consolidating facilities for the European Commission, introducing residential development and transforming a highway into one of the key axes leading to the city centre.

The five shortlisted teams, selected from a longlist of 35, will now come up with design proposals, and a final selection is expected to be made at the end of the year.
