Growth corridor finalists revealed


Growth corridor finalists revealed


AUGUST 2017

The National Infrastructure Commission and Malcolm Reading Consultants have announced the shortlist for The Cambridge to Oxford Connection: Ideas Competition (see related article)

Fletcher Priest Architects and Mae are among four teams shortlisted in the international contest for ideas to boost sustainable development within the UK’s Cambridge-to-Oxford growth corridor

The region is home to 3.3 million people and hosts some of the country’s most successful cities, as well as the world-leading Oxbridge universities. Launched in June 2017, the first stage encouraged entries from teams with a range of backgrounds - made up of urban designers; architects; landscape designers, planners and community specialists.

Honorable mentions were given to O&H Properties and OMMX, who was awarded £500,000 for the London “Naked House” initiative earlier this year.

Bridget Rosewell, Commissioner, the National Infrastructure Commission and Competition Jury:

"At the second stage, we will be looking for proposals that are rooted in their context and understand the local character, environment and landscape. We have asked competitors to consider how places will be integrated with infrastructure, but above all, we want to see what the proposals will mean for the lives of the people living and working in the corridor"

The competition jury will meet again in October to review the second-stage submissions, interview the shortlist and select a winner of the competition. The announcement of the winner is expected in early November.
