Jan 2020Birmingham Smithfield Market Competition

We are delighted to announce that we are the winners of an international competition to design a new home for the historic Smithfield Markets in the heart of Birmingham. Our team includes Birmingham-based artist multiverse, Eastside Projects alongside, Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, Mark El-khatib, Charcoalblue, Price & Myers, WSP, Urban Space Management, Plan A Consultants and Max Fordham.

Smithfield has been the productive centre of markets and makers since the foundation of Birmingham and integral to its success as the ‘City of a Thousand Trades’. The new markets will be the centrepiece of the £1.5 billion Smithfield development which will deliver significant cultural and family leisure opportunities, a new public square, integrated public transport and more than 2,000 homes surrounding a public park.

We are looking forward to working with Lendlease, Birmingham City Council, local businesses and the wider community on such an important project for the city.
