London mayor’s new architecture panel revealed

London Mayor Sadiq Khan

Feilden Fowles, 6a Architects, and Duggan Morris are among a raft of practices chosen for the London mayor’s new £35 million Architecture and Urbanism framework

Teams chosen for the 14 lots were whittled down from more than 225 shortlisted applicants using a design challenge to showcase their expertise.

Winning teams range from small emerging practices such as DK-CM and We Made That to industry heavyweights Allford Hall Monaghan Morris and Foster + Partners.

The 14 lots cover urban strategies, masterplanning, public realm, housing, commercial, over-station development, public art, engagement, conservation, smart cities and graphic design.

Outfits selected for more than one lot include 5th Studio, Maccreanor Lavington, Adam Khan Architects, Allies and Morrison, Karakusevic Carson Architects, Hawkins\Brown, AHMM, Architecture 00, Carl Turner Architects and Muf architecture/art.

Teams chosen for the latest iteration of the mayor’s Architecture and Urbanism Panel will have access to a treasure trove of TfL and City Hall commissions over the next four years.

The framework replaces an earlier panel (ADUP) which is due to expire. It will cover a range of architecture, urban design, public realm, and housing projects on publicly owned land throughout the rapidly growing city.

Among the selected teams’ greatest rewards will be a chance to bring forward more than 100 residential-led developments planned for TfL’s 2,300ha estate as part of mayor Sadiq Khan’s promise to deliver genuinely affordable homes for the capital.

ADUP was announced in 2012 to promote ‘quality architecture, public realm, urban regeneration and sustainable development in the capital’ and was officially launched two years later. It delivered more than 80 projects worth £22 million in fees during its lifetime.

Among the 60 architects appointed to the inaugural panel were established firms including Studio Egret West and 2013 Stirling Prize-winner Witherford Watson Mann, alongside emerging studios such as Assemble, winner of the 2015 Turner Prize.

Projects procured under the original ADUP included Landolt + Brown’s redevelopment of White Hart Lane overground station (pictured) in Tottenham, north London.

The new panel, which can be used by London boroughs, housing associations, mayoral development corporations and other bodies, will incorporate a greater range of expertise in housing-led development and masterplanning than its predecessor.

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, AOC, We Made That, Muf architecture/art, Maccreanor Lavington, Klassnik Corporation, Gort Scott, 5th Studio, Adam Khan and Hawkins\Brown all feature on both the old and new frameworks.

Practices which featured on the original ADUP but are absent from the new framework include Assemble, Studio Egret West and Witherford Watson Mann.
