The RIBA's competitions office has unveiled these images of the shortlisted schemes in the Sheffield Festival Centre contest.

Designs by ex-Chipperfield duo Carmody Groarke and locals Houghton Budd Architects are among the six finalists vying to land the £3 million project to expand Sheffield's Showroom cinema and Workstation business centre. The other four firms still in the running are Prue Chiles Architects, HLM Architects, Jason King, and Slovenian practice Sadar Vuga Arhitekti with The Designers Republic. Architects were asked to come up with a exible, 'bold and highquality' building for the site opposite the city's railway station, which would be 'much more' than just a new entrance to the existing centre. All six schemes are on public exhibition at The Showroom until next Friday (29 June).
