5th Studio were finalists for the Smithfield Market competition, making the final five from over 70 entries were received from across the world in a strongly fought competition that included BIG and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. Our team included John O’Mara Architects, Estudio Martí Franch, Arup, Donald Hyslop, New Economics Foundation, Squint Opera, Counterculture and the Planning Lab. The other finalists comprised teams led by David Kohn Architects (the competition winners), ACME & b720 Fermín Vázquez arquitectos with James Corner Field Operations, Moreau Kusunoki Architects and Publica with Alejandro Echeverri & Shigeru Ban.

We can now reveal our submission which, as required by the competition, focussed on a design approach rather than a proposal.

The new markets will be the centrepiece of the £1.5 billion Smithfield development. Lendlease is Birmingham City Council’s preferred development partner for Smithfield and the Markets are central to the City Council’s Big City Plan, a 25-year vision to support the development of a world-class city centre.
