Architects vie for major new Milton Keynes masterplan

  • Comment

English Partnerships has shortlisted eight architects for a new masterplan of central Milton Keynes, 28 years after its original design was produced. Richard Rogers Partnership, Terry Farrell and Partners, Sheppard Robson, Patel Taylor Architects, EDAW, PRP Architects, Urban Strategies and Buro Happold have been shortlisted as lead consultants managing a team of sub-consultants. Both RRP and Buro Happold are working with Dutch landscape architect West 8.

The architects have been asked to focus on the area around the Milton Keynes Theatre and reconsider the town's layout.

'With government guidance on increasing densities and less parking it's time to look at this again, ' said EP project co-ordinator, Sylvia Short. 'Should we think about making the boulevards more pedestrian and more dense?'

The winner of the £250,000 contract will be decided by competitive interview on 5 July.
