Wandsworth Council has revealed the four design teams shortlisted for the second stage of the Nine Elms to Pimlico bridge design competition.

Launched earlier this month the competition attracted 74 entries who each submitted a proposal for a new pedestrian and cycle link across the Thames.

The finalist were selected by the competition’s jury panel which includes Wandsworth Council leader Ravi Govindia, Lambeth councillor Joanne Simpson, architect Graham Stirk, engineer Henry Bardsley and chair of Cabe at Design Council Pam Alexander.

Take a look at the shortlisted entrants below.

Buro Happold- with Marks Barfield Architects, J&L Gibbons Landscape Architects, Gardiner and Theobald

Bystrup Architecture Design and Engineering - with Robin Snell & Partners, Sven Ole Hansen ApS, Aarsleff and ÅF Lighting

Ove Arup & Partners - with AL_A, Gross Max, Equals Consulting and Movement Strategies

The next stage of the competition will see the shortlisted teams develop their initial ideas into detailed designs.

Wandsworth Council said that it expects to announce the winning team in late autumn this year, however a new bridge will require planning permission before getting the go ahead.

The competition is being run by Colander and follows Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) public sector procurement processes so the successful design team can be appointed to the project.
