Make designs Hogmanay centrepiece for Edinburgh - images

Make has drawn up these concept designs for a new arena in Edinburgh city centre, which will replace a famous bandstand in the heart of the city.

The London-based practice has designed three different concepts for the Ross Bandstand site in Princess Street Gardens, the focus of the annual Hogmanay celebrations.

The city council commissioned Make after deciding that the existing facility ( pictured below) was no longer up to the celebrations.

The three proposals are called Landform ( pictured above), Shell and Leaf ( both pictured below).

The most expensive design is the Landform, which comes in at £9.9 million, followed by the Leaf and Shell respectively.

It is as yet unclear whether Make will be taking this scheme any further. The practice is understood to believe that the project will now become either an OJEU notice or a competition.
