  • Comment
The London Development Agency (LDA) has announced the shortlist for the Olympic Legacy masterplan team

The London Development Agency (LDA) has announced the shortlist for the Olympic Legacy masterplan team.

A giant team lead by 2012 masterplanner EDAW – and featuring a host of UK and international architects including Caruso St John and Allies and Morrison – will go head to head with two other consortia and three single practices, including Rem Koolhaas’ OMA.

The Dutch are well represented in the six-strong shortlist which, as well as the Rotterdam-based OMA, features Dutch firms KCAP, West 8 and Maxwan and Anglo-Dutch practices S333 and Maccreanor Lavington.

The winning team will create the physical framework for new homes, parkland, schools, health facilities, infrastructure and work space in the Lower Lea Valley, in what will be the largest regeneration scheme in inner London.

The full shortlist is:

a consortium led by EDAW with Allies and Morrison, McDowell + Benedetti, Caruso St John, Haworth Tompkins, Maccreanor Lavington, Panter Hudspith, S333, Vogt, Camlin Lonsdale, Buro Happold, Faber Maunsell, Beyond Green, JMP, PMP, Vision XS, and Nick Ritblat;

a consortium led by Arup with Fletcher Priest Architects, West 8, RPS, Leaside Regeneration, Dialogue;

a consortium led by Urban Practitioners with Maxwan, URS Townshend, L+R Consulting;

Kees Christiaanse Architects and Planners;

Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA); and

Witherford Watson Mann.

The six teams were whittled down from 34 submissions following a call for expressions of interest in August.

Manny Lewis, chief executive of the LDA, described the scheme as ‘a once in a lifetime opportunity to transform east London,’ and added that ‘the quality of design is crucial to creating thriving and sustainable communities.’
