Gehry, Piano, Foster and Levete among star-studded shortlist for landmark City of London concert hall
A host of leading international architects are in the running to create a concept design for a new Centre for Music in the City of London.
Snøhetta, Diller Scofidio + Renfro and the firms led by Amanda Levete, Frank Gehry, Norman Foster and Renzo Piano have all been shortlisted in the international competition for the concert hall; billed as “a state-of-the-art building of acoustic and visual excellence.”
In May, the Barbican performing arts centre, London Symphony Orchestra and Guildhall School of Music & Drama launched the architecture competition. The winning design will inform a detailed business case for the project; a study backed by £2.5m funding from the City of London Corporation, which will be produced by December 2018.
