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