Ken Yeang is on a shortlist of three architects to design the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, Germany.
The practices still in the race are Coop Himmelblau, ASP Schweger Assoziierte and joint venture 54f architekten–T.R. Hamzah & Yeang.

The Austrian firm of Coop Himmelblau took first prize in the design competition and was praised for the way it used modern design to enhance the historic Grossmarkethalle buildings.

However, despite taking 10 of the 12 votes, the contract is not automatically guaranteed to go to Coop Himmelblau.

The three architects now have an opportunity to revise their schemes before the bank meets city officials to make a final decision.

The bank is staging an exhibition of the 80 designs that were selected to take part in the first phase of the competition at the Deutsches Architektur Museum in Frankfurt until 14 March.
