Summary Ideas: Grosvenor Square transformation 
Description

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland has launched an international call for ideas to re-imagine Grosvenor Square in London.

Architects, designers and creative thinkers from across the world are invited to submit proposals to re-imagine the historic square for locals, visitors, Londoners and future generations, with the aim of reinstating Grosvenor Square as one of the world’s leading public spaces.

In 2017, Grosvenor surveyed 1,000 Londoners and visitors to find out their views on how this public space should be used. The feedback was that awareness of the square was low and that it was seen as imposing and unwelcoming by those who knew it.

The return of management responsibilities for Grosvenor Square to Grosvenor in May 2018 has presented a remarkable opportunity to redefine and improve the historic square’s civic, aesthetic and cultural contribution to Mayfair, the West End, London and the world.

Grosvenor, the owner of Grosvenor Square, has brought together an independent panel of experts to review submissions from architects, horticulturalists, placemakers, urbanists, artists, gallerists, retailers and designers.
