Rafael Vinoly shortlisted in UK medical research centre architecture competition

  • Comment
Rafael Viñoly is among the three finalists in the competition to design the UK's new Centre for Medical Research and Innovation behind the British Library in central London.
HOK and a pairing of NBBJ and Llewellyn Davies Yeang complete the shortlist of teams vying to build the prestigious multi-million pound facility.

Backed by Cancer Research UK, the Medical Research Council, the Wellcome Trust and University College London, the project aims to create an internationally recognised ‘interdisciplinary biomedical research centre’ housing up to 1,500 scientists.

It is hoped the centre will open its doors in 2013.

A winner is expected to be announced within the next few days.
