David Chipperfield Architects, Flacq and Wilkinson Eyre are among eight European practices shortlisted in the competition to design the velopark for the London 2012 Olympics. Joining them on the shortlist are David Morley Architects, Dominique Perrault Architecture, FaulknerBrowns with Heatherwick Studio, Foreign Office Architects and Hopkins Architects with Sanda Douma Associates. The eight teams will now be asked to put forward design concepts for the velodrome and a temporary BMX circuit, and will be judged by a panel including Ricky Burdett (whose rough sketch of the 2012 Olympic site, including the velopark, is pictured on the right) and 2004 Olympic-gold-medal-winning cyclist Chris Hoy. The winner will be announced in the summer.
