Star architects shortlisted for King’s Cross pavilion

  • Comment

Carmody Groarke, Amanda Levete and Niall McLaughlin are among architects competing to design a new pavilion for King’s Cross in London

Asif Khan, Duggan Morris, Jamie Fobert and Ian Ritchie are also included on the seven-strong list of architects chosen to work up visions for the structure.

The pavilion is the latest addition to Argent’s 27-hectare King’s Cross regeneration scheme which already includes a new home for Central Saint Martins and plans for an AHMM-designed Google headquarters and an Aga Khan university and cultural centre.

Located in a new public square named after King’s Cross station engineer Lewis Cubitt, the ‘canopy structure’ will frame the main public approach to the 47,000m² Aga Khan complex which is being designed by Fumihiko Maki and Stanton Williams.

A winner is expected to be announced next year.
