Match the designer to the design: who is responsible for the Natural History Museum landscape designs?

The Natural History Museum has released images of the five concept strategies put forward by the shortlisted teams vying to win the design competition to reshape the Museum’s grounds and reinvigorate its public setting in the heart of London’s South Kensington.

The shortlisted teams, comprising architects in collaboration with landscape architects and other sub-consultants (not listed here), were announced in November 2013 and include:

  • BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) with Martha Schwartz Partners
  • Grant Associates with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios
  • Niall McLaughlin Architects with Kim Wilkie
  • Land Use Consultants (LUC) with Design Engine
  • Stanton Williams Architects with Bradley-Hole Schoenaich Landscape Architects
The proposals boards of the five teams can be downloaded here:
Under EU procurement rules the teams’ concepts can only be revealed anonymously to the public until the winner is selected and announced by the Museum. However, sharp-eyed design experts may enjoy a spot of detective work in speculating which team is behind each proposal. Can you match the designs to the designers?
