Eight international architects have been shortlisted for the the first phase of Rick Mather's masterplan for the redevelopment of the South Bank arts complex in central London.
The South Bank Centre has chosen a diverse list of applicants to compete for the Jubilee Gardens/ Hungerford site, which will include a concert hall, a film centre, a multiplex cinema and a car park.

Shortlisted applicants include an unconventional collaborative group called the Jubilee Gardens Design Laboratory, which is made up of architects, film-makers and artists in London and Madrid.

The list includes established names such as Ian Ritchie and US architect Rafael Vinoly, and avant-garde designers such as Foreign Office Architects, Future Systems and Zaha Hadid.

Two international designers, Australia-based Denton Corker Marshall and Japan-based Itsuko Hasegawa, are also in contention. The final eight will be interviewed next month. A decision is expected in April.
