Zaha Hadid Architects, AHMM and Es Devlin are among the 39 design teams that have been longlisted to design a public space to replace the roundabout at Old Street in London.
The competitions is being run as part of a wider plan to reorganise the roads at the Old Street interchange, which will see the removal of the “outdated and intimidating” 1960s roundabout.
More than 120 registrations of interest were received to reimagine the public realm, with 39 teams longlisted.
Following a public consultation a panel will draw up a shortlist of best entries that will be announced later in March.
