Bids invited for new landmark London concert hall


An expert design team is being sought to create “an inspiring and innovative” music venue in central London. The international competition, led by


the Barbican, London Symphony Orchestra, Guildhall School of Music & Drama and The City of London Corporation, is inviting “creative and world-leading experts” to develop a concept design for the new Centre for Music in the City of London. The organisations are seeking to appoint


architect, building service engineer, civil and structural engineer, acoustician, and theatre consultant to develop “a state-of-the-art building of acoustic and visual excellence” consisting world-class concert hall, educa- tion, training and commercial facilitates “fit for the digital age.” The first stage of the procurement is for


architect/lead designer. Companies can submit their responses to a Selection Questionnaire available on the City of London Corporation procurement portal (www.capitalesourcing.com) by the


deadline of 9 June (12 pm BST). Six schemes will be shortlisted and archi-


tects will receive £10,000 to submit a detailed response to the brief, the company’s approach to delivering the project, details of the design team, and a fee proposal. The commission, worth up to £12m, will be granted following a detailed interview process. The competitions for building


services engineer and civil & structural engineer are also open, with deadlines set for 14 June (12 pm BST). Both contracts are worth an estimated £40m in fees. Invitations to tender will be issued to interested parties for the acoustician and theatre consultant roles without an SQ process. The Centre for Music will occupy the site


of the Museum of London once the museum relocates, and form a new ‘cultural corridor’ running from Tate Modern through the Millennium Bridge and St Paul’s and to various cultural stops in the Square Mile.

David Chipperfield wins Edinburgh auditorium commission


David Chipperfield Architects has been chosen to design the new concert hall in Edinburgh following a two-stage interna- tional contest. Arup, WME, landscape architects


Gross Maxx, consultancy Theatre Projects and acousticians Nagata will also work on the project. The 1,000-seat concert venue, which


will house the Scottish Chamber Orchestra (SCO), will be built on a gap site behind the historic headquarters of the Royal Bank of Scotland, Dundas House, and host a broad range of musical genres. The design by DCA has been described as “intriguing” as well as “well-expressed”. David Chipperfield said: “We are


thrilled to have been selected to design this project. Edinburgh is a wonderful city and we are very much looking forward to working with IMPACT Scotland, the SCO and all those involved to develop a new concert venue for this extraordinary site.” The architects saw off five practices to


win the commission, including London’s Adjaye Associates and Allies and Morrison, Edinburgh’s Richard Murphy Architects, Barozzi Veiga from Switzerland and Canadian practice KPMB Architects. The two-stage competition was organ-


ised by Colander Associates and the six finalists received £10,000 for their designs.
