New Chelsea Barracks Shortlist Revealed

Wednesday 12 August 2009

Ten architecture and masterplanning practices have been shortlisted to design a new masterplan for the Chelsea Barracks site, following the withdrawal of the Richard Rogers scheme by Qatari Diar.

The shortlist consists of a heady mix of practices including New Urbanists Duany Plater-Zyberk, as well as Allies and Morrison, Hamiltons Architects and Terry Farrell & Partners.

NLA held a debate last month to ask what lessons should be learnt from the Chelsea Barracks site. Robert Adam (Robert Adam Architects), Ben Derbyshire (HTA) and Rowan Moore (Evening Standard) headed up a fascinating discussion around issues of style, density and architectural context.

A new planning application is expected to be submitted next year.
