Shortlist announced for new temporary landmark and entrance to City of London

The Architecture Foundation, on behalf of the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects, has announced the shortlisted entries in an open international competition to design a New Aldgate - a temporary landmark and entrance to the City of London - to stand for the duration of 2012. As the 250th anniversary of the destruction of the City gates in 2010, the Aldgate project will provide a new Aldgate landmark and gateway to celebrate London’s openness and diversity, and the City's role as an international trading centre.

Nearly 100 innovative designs were entered from applicants around the world from which five projects have been shortlisted. Each shortlisted team will be awarded £1,000, and will move on to the next stage of adjudication. The winning proposal, to be awarded £3,000, will be announced on 22 July 2010.

The shortlisted proposals are as follows:
‘London Gate’ by DONIS (Netherlands)
‘The Listening Posts’ by Foster Lomas Ltd (UK)
‘Aldgate to the World’ by Juan Alfonso Galan Arquitecto (UK)
‘Ceci n’est pas une maison’ by NORMAL (Canada)
‘Vertical Forest’ by Sou Fujimoto Architects (Japan)

Entries were judged anonymously by a panel including Alderman Mike Bear, City of London; Achim Borchardt Hume, Chief Curator, Whitechapel Gallery; Roger France, Master of the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects; Sarah Ichioka, Director, The Architecture Foundation; and Peter Murray, Chairman, New London Architecture.
