Competing proposals for Tampere’s new transport interchange by four architects including London-based AZPML have been revealed

Alejandro Zaera-Polo’s practice AZPML was among five practices shortlisted for the Finnish city’s major station redevelopment project in March.

Only four of the teams however submitted proposals in time for the second stage deadline and their anonymous proposals have now been unveiled to the public.

Outfits vying for the project

  • Alejandro Zaera-Polo & Maider Llaguno Architecture and Arkkitehtitoimisto Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Oy (architectural and city planning / Great Britain and Finland) and WSP Finland Ltd. (traffic planning, Finland)
  • COBE ApS and Lunden Architecture Oy (architectural and city planning, Denmark and Finland) and Ramboll Finland Ltd (traffic planning, Finland)
  • Karres en Brands Landscape architecture + urban planning and Benthem Crouwell Architects (architectural and city planning, the Netherlands) and Ramboll Finland Ltd (traffic planning, Finland)
  • KCAP Architects and Planners (architectural and city planning, Switzerland) and Trafix Oy (traffic planning, Finland)

The project will create a new travel centre integrating rail services and the city tram network alongside 100,000m² of retail, offices, and housing.

A winner will be announced on 2 October.
