SEARCH IN BRIEF

 
Potential designs released for Bristol Royal Infirmary

Three shortlisted practices have been selected to compete for the redesign of the Bristol Royal Infirmary Queen’s Building in south west England. The competition invited architects and artists to imagine a dynamic new façade for the building which was once voted one of Bristol’s ugliest buildings.

An exhibition of the three designs will be exhibited at the Architecture Centre in Bristol until 28 July with local residents invited to comment on their favourite. A new ward block, helipad and Welcome Centre are also part of wider regeneration plans.

The three architects on the shortlist are:

Nieto Sobejano (Madrid)
Tham and Videgard (Stockholm)
Solid Objectives - Idenburg Liu, SO-IL (New York)
