Aberdeen City Garden shortlist unveiled
Six teams have made the shortlist in a competition to find a design team to lead the regeneration of Aberdeen’s Union Terrace Gardens.

Each team will now prepare concept designs ahead of a September deadline and public exhibition whereupon a panel of experts will begin the process of evaluating the designs.

The shortlisted teams are:
  • Diller Scofidio and Renfro / Keppie Design in association with Olin Studio.
  • Foster & Partners / Vladimir Djurovic Landscape Architecture in association with Gardiner & Theobald.
  • Snohetta / Gareth Hoskins Architects in association with AECOM.
  • Gustafson Porter / Niall McLaughlin Architects in association with Space Syntax, Arup and Jackson Coles.
  • Mecanoo Architecten / Cooper Cromar in association with Ian White, Buro Happold and Davis Langdon.
  • West 8 in association with Arup and Turner & Townsend

Organised by Malcolm Reading Consultants the project is intended to cover over the existing Denburn dual carriageway and railway line in a bid to increase public space.

Campaigners have reacted angrily to the plans however, pointing out that the hugely expensive undertaking comes at a time of cutbacks in the city council.
