MARGATE HEAD TURNERS

Six practices have been shortlisted to design the Turner art gallery in Margate, Kent. More than 150 architects entered a competition for the £7 million building, adjacent to where nineteenth-century painter JMW Turner lived for many years. Each practice has been awarded £10,000 to work up a scheme and the winner will be announced in September. The practices are: Benson and Forsyth, Edward Cullinan, Haworth Tompkins, Niall McLaughlin, Eric Parry, and Snohetta and Spence.
