A collection of images from the recently closed competition for the United States Embassy in London:
Richard Meier’s (New York) entry above.
The design from Morphosis (Santa Monica).
The Pei Cobb Freed entry (New York).
Sadly, the image above is from the winning entry from Kieran Timberlake (Philadelphia).
Selected reading regarding the competition:
The Guardian.co.uk (in which Sir Richard Rogers decrees that the winning entry is “unfit to represent the US in Britain.”)
