The shortlist to design the Welsh Parliament building has been trimmed from 12 to six.

The new contenders are: Richard Rogers Partnership, MacCormac Jamieson Prichard, Eric Parry Architects, Itsuko Hasegawa Atelier with Kajima Design Europe, Niels Torp Arkitekter with Stride Treglown Davies and Benson + Forsyth.

Welsh secretary Ron Davies said that the machinery for setting up the assembly was now in place and that he was delighted to have made such rapid progress towards 'reforms that are so long overdue'.

An exhibition, 'Cynulliad - Building an Assembly for Wales', will start in Deiniol Shopping Centre in Bangor on 24-29 August to raise public appreciation of assembly designs. It then moves to Cardiff's Capitol Shopping Centre, Queen Street, from 9-19 September, where it is to be opened by assembly competition assessment panel chair Lord Callaghan. Submissions will be made public on 15 October.
