Finalists include Timpson Manley Architecture & Urban Design, with graphic designer Harland Design, for an interactive skeletal armature with animated images; Pearson Lloyd Design Partnership's 'waymaker' posts linked to databases of timetables, historical details and points of interest; Art 2 Architecture, a collaboration between architect Igor Marko and artist Peter Fink, and its series of structural masts with power and it cabling and slip-on modules; and Mackenzie-Chong Design's post with vertical fixing slots for adaptable street furniture.

A fifth award, for student entries, went to Thierry Cruchen from isacf La Cambre in Brussels, for his illuminated tube and membrane frame that can be bent over to form a cover.

The final assessment is on 14 May. Each finalist has won £2000 from the total of £25,000 prize money, donated by Grosvenor Estate and Howard de Walden Estates.

The winner's design will be built at various sites in the borough from summer 2000.
