Graeme Massie makes shortlist for Birmingham’s Centenary Square
Graeme Massie Architects have made a five strong shortlist to oversee the redesign of Birmingham’s Centenary Square after seeing off 185 entrants from around the world in an anonymous RIBA competition.

The practice will now go head-to-head with Atkins, Barton Willmore. Broadway Malyan and Open Studio Architects with United Visual Artists to develop more detailed plans ahead of a public exhibition this May.

Sasha Bhavan of Knox Bhavan Architects, who helped judge the contest, said: “It was the impressive analysis and empathy with the site and city, which probably resulted in an all UK shortlist, 2 of which are Birmingham practices. We are looking forward to being surprised and delighted with the developing next stage of the competition. This is a tremendous opportunity for the shortlisted 5 and Birmingham to show how innovative thoughtful design can transform a major public civic space."

The winning scheme will be announced in June and delivered via the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership by 2017.

Lets hope Birmingham Council are more adept at achieving a decent design solution than a certain Glaswegian pathetic-excuse-for-a-Provost-who-shall-not-be-named...
