LONDON.- The Centre for Music project has today announced the architects shortlisted to compete to develop a concept design for a new Centre for Music in the City of London.

In May, the Barbican, London Symphony Orchestra and Guildhall School of Music & Drama, who are leading on the development of a detailed business case for the new Centre backed by £2.5million in funding from the City of London Corporation, launched an open selection process to shortlist companies for this role, seeking applications from internationally-recognised experts to develop plans for a state-of-the-art building of acoustic and visual excellence.

The project received applications from companies from across the globe and, following assessment of applications against the published criteria, the architects receiving an Invitation to Tender (ITT) for the contract will be:

• AL_A (UK) and Diamond Schmitt Architects (Canada)
• Diller Scofidio + Renfro (USA) and Sheppard Robson (UK)
• Foster + Partners (UK)
• Gehry Partners, LLP (USA) and Arup Associates (UK)
• Renzo Piano Building Workshop (France)
• Snøhetta (Norway)

The Centre for Music is planned to contain a world-class concert hall, education, training and digital spaces, excellent facilities for audiences and performers, and significant supporting commercial areas. It would be a place of welcome, participation, discovery and learning fit for the digital age. At the heart of the City of London’s thriving arts venues and its emerging cultural hub, this landmark new building is planned to be a visible signal of commitment to the future of music that enhances London’s position as a world leading centre for the cultural and creative industries.

Catherine McGuinness, Policy Chairman at the City of London Corporation, said: “It is hugely encouraging that so many leading architects from around the world have responded enthusiastically to the challenge to develop a concept design for the Centre for Music. For them, it represents an exceptional opportunity to help realise the plans for this truly remarkable concert hall – outstanding in design and open to all - in the heart of the Square Mile. For the key partners behind this project and the City of London Corporation, this important announcement brings everyone a step closer towards one of the most widely anticipated and significant developments in the Square Mile’s vibrant cultural hub.”

The ITT that the shortlisted architects receive will request a detailed response to the design brief, the company’s approach to delivering the project, details of the team that would work on the project and a fee proposal.

Shortlisted bids will then be assessed and scored based on their tender submission and, following a detailed interview process with the assessment panel, an appointment decision will be made.
