Londoners are being asked for their views on five shortlisted designs for the Met’s new HQ.
Earlier this year it was announced the force would move in 2015 from its current HQ to a new Scotland Yard located on the Victoria Embankment.
The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) says the move will provide the Met with a purpose-built HQ suitable for the needs of modern policing.
It will also free up cash to help the force meet its target of £500m of savings over the next three years.
In May, working with the the Royal Institute of British Architects, MOPAC and the Met invited submissions to transform the empty Curtis Green Building into a new HQ.A shortlist of architects was announced in July and the designs are now going on public display ahead of the final selection being announced next month.
The designs will be on display at City Hall this Saturday when the building opens to the public as part of Open House Weekend, and at a free public exhibition from Monday 23 to Thursday 26 September, also held at City Hall.
