Six-strong shortlist to battle it out at Corpus Christi

An ancient Oxford college has shortlisted six major British practices to design its new music auditorium.

Corpus Christi College announced the selection of architects, which include Tate St Ives extension designer Jamie Fobert, earlier this week.

The new auditorium will replace an existing music room designated as 'no longer sufficient'.

The jury, which included Terry Pawson advising on behalf of the RIBA, said of the selection: '[These] were the teams that the panel felt would produce a high quality and innovative design that would integrate sensitively within this truly historic setting.'

The other practices shortlisted were Alison Brooks Architects, John McAslan + Partners, Rick Mather Architects, Snell Associates and Wright & Wright Architects.

More than 100 expressions of interest were received for the competition from across the globe.
