The Adelaide Contemporary International Design Competition today revealed the six shortlisted teams seeking to transform the former Royal Adelaide Hospital site into a mixed-use urban quarter dubbed Adelaide Contemporary:
- Adjaye Associates (London, UK) and BVN (Sydney, Australia)
- BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group (Copenhagen, Denmark) and JPE Design Studio (Adelaide, Australia)
- David Chipperfield Architects (London, UK) and SJB Architects (Sydney, Australia)
- Diller Scofidio + Renfro (New York, USA) and Woods Bagot (Adelaide, Australia)
- HASSELL (Melbourne, Australia) and SO-IL (New York, USA)
- Khai Liew (Adelaide, Australia), Office of Ryue Nishizawa (Tokyo, Japan) and Durbach Block Jaggers (Sydney, Australia)
Stage 1 of the competition attracted 107 teams made up of circa 525 individual firms from five continents. For each team, international firms teamed up with Australian practices to be able to proceed to Stage 2.
Upon further briefing and a site visit in January, finalist teams will now have until April 2018 to come up with concept designs that will be presented to the public in an exhibition in Adelaide as well as online. The selection of the winning design is scheduled for June 2018.
Adelaide Contemporary is intended to become a new landmark on the city's celebrated North Terrace boulevard, combining a contemporary art gallery with a public sculpture park and meeting place.
