In March 2019, BEE Midtown called for submissions for the design of a new focal and inventive’ information kiosk, to replace the existing fixed structure outside Holborn Tube station.
The existing, manned kiosk, located on Kingsway, oversees a bustling location between the City and the West End: a meeting point of history, culture, commerce, education and creativity. However, the way people communicate, source information and traverse through cities is changing rapidly.
The new kiosk has been designed to reflect this.
BEE Midtown’s brief to urban visionaries and designers included requirements to reduce pedestrian congestion, provide transparency from different viewpoints, to include sustainable elements and be fully accessible. They also required the design to reflect the creativity that is core to the success and growth of Midtown.
NLA is delighted to share with you the shortlisted highly commended and winning designs. The winning design, subject to planning processes, should be installed in early 2020.
