Finalists in international River Douglas Contest unveiled

  • Comment
Practices from Austria and the USA have been named among the seven finalists in the RIBA competition to design a new bridge over the River Douglas, near Preston, Lancashire.

New York-based structural engineer Guy Nordenson & Associates and Austrian firm t-hoch-n Architektur are joined on the seven-strong shortlist by Amin Taha Architects with structural engineer Webb Yates, JDA with Arup, London’s Nick Hancock Design Studio, Rambøll Whitbybird with Priestman Goode, and Cumbrian practice NPS North West,.

The international contest attracted 110 entries, including submissions from Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia and Australia.

Entrants were asked to design a cycle and bridleway crossing of the River Douglas at Hesketh Bank and a ‘flagship attraction to the regional park’.

All seven designs will go out for public consultation in September and the shortlisted teams will ‘discuss their concepts’ with the judging panel the following month.
