Tintagel Castle: Shortlist announced

The organisers of the design competition for a new footbridge at Tintagel Castle in Cornwall, England, have shortlisted six out of one hundred and thirty seven entries. A winner is due to be announced early in 2016.

  • Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes with Terrell (France)
  • Marks Barfield Architects with Flint and Neill (UK)
  • Ney & Partners Civil Engineers with William Matthews Associates, Ettwein Bridges and Waagner Biro (Belgium)
  • Niall McLaughlin Architects with Price and Myers, and Max Fordham (UK)
  • RFR and Jean-François Blassel Architecte, with Engineers HRW, and WSP (France)
  • Wilkinson Eyre with Atelier One (UK)

They seem to have assembled some (mostly) impressive contestants, although a number of well-known bridge design specialists are notable for their absence. I certainly look forward to seeing the various designs unveiled in due course.
