Landscape design competition shortlist revealed for 'The Spine'

Five teams have been shortlisted in Lancaster University's urban design competition to redesign its principal walkway, known as The Spine.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) on behalf of Lancaster University revealed the competition shortlist today.

The ‘Spine’, is a partially covered pedestrian walkway spanning one end of the campus to the other and was originally designed to allow pedestrians to walk the whole length of the campus while providing a degree of protection from the weather.

RIBA said the competition received an excellent response. The shortlisted teams are:

  • Gustafson Porter
  • Land Use Consultants (with Design Engine Architects)
  • Rick Mather Architects (with Grant Associates)
  • Shepheard Epstein Hunter
  • White Arkitekter

The shortlisted teams will now work on their design proposals and will be invited to present these to the judging panel in September.
