4 vie for passage prize

  • Comment

Four teams have been shortlisted in the competition to redesign Sutton Walk, the passageway that links London's South Bank to Waterloo Station, under Hungerford Bridge. The teams of architects and artists have produced proposals which go on public display from 14 November. The winner of the £200,000 competition will be announced on 8 December.

Above: MacCormac Jamieson Prichard, artist Alberto Duman and marketing firm Stylus propose a glass image wall along one side of Sutton Walk and a mirror monolith at the Waterloo entrance. A photograph of the whole of the existing wall will be printed onto the image wall and backlit

Above: artist Marcus Taylor, fabricator Michael Smith and engineer Dewhurst Macfarlane propose mirrored panels based on mouldings of the existing walls, which will produce scattered reflections

Above: decoi Architects proposes a spiral surface coiling within the walkway, then cantilevering towards the Festival Hall. Two ground planes in stone interweave with three soaring, tessellated aluminium planes
