The Leeds City Square design competition is being run by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and Leeds City Council with Balfour Beatty.
The aim is to produce a piece of public realm that gives visitors to Leeds a good first impression. Competition entrants were instructed to “represent the ambitions of Leeds and reflect its diverse community”.
The five shortlisted teams are:
- Aecom with Graeme Massie
- Re-form Landscape architecture
Each of the shortlisted teams has been invited to develop a concept design for the future of City Square in response to the phase two brief.
