International Urban Design Competition: Kings Cross Square, London

  • Comment
Camden Council and land owner Network Rail are seeking expressions of interest from architects, landscape architects and urban designers for the design of a brand new, urban square at Kings Cross, London. The new square, occupying 7000m2 directly in front of the historic Grade 1 listed façade to Kings Cross must be able to cope with up to one hundred thousand commuters, visitors and residents every day. The anticipated budget for the project is six million pounds at today’s cost.

An international, two-stage design competition has been announced simultaneously in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) and on a dedicated competition internet site (www.malcolmreading.co.uk/kingsxsquare).

The first stage of the competition invites a response from international participants before the end of July who are asked to submit credentials and relevant experience. From these responses a shortlist of six will be chosen to work up concept propositions, for which an honorarium of £6000 will be paid. These will be reviewed by a technical panel and a final decision made by a jury that will meet in early December.

Competition deadline.
King’s Cross Square submissions must be received by: 12.00hrs GMT on August 1, 2008.
