Railtrack visions

  • Comment

The Architecture Foundation has announced a shortlist for an international ideas competition for housing on a Railtrack goodsyard: Arthur Collin Architect, Cartwright Pickard Architects, DCA-6 Architects, Bill Dunster Architects, Bryant Priest Newman and the Dutch firm of Group for Architecture. The teams have won £5000 to firm up their ideas for Bishopsgate Goodsyard in London's Tower Hamlets. In addition to the shortlisted are eight invited entrants announced in June, including Alsop & Stormer, Renzo Piano and Ian Ritchie Architects.

Chetwood Associates' Sainsbury's on London's Greenwich Peninsula, billed as the world's first low-energy supermarket, opened this week. The £13 million building is hemmed in with earth mounds, and uses solar and wind turbines to half fuel bills. Derek Lovejoy Partnership landscaped around the 5500m2 building.
