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

We are calling on urban visionaries, whether individuals, groups or companies, to submit ideas – strategies, projects, experiments and solutions – to reinstate Grosvenor Square as one of London’s leading squares. The best ideas will form the detailed brief for a design competition next year in preparation for delivery.

We would love to hear from you.

An independent panel of experts convened by Grosvenor and chaired by Yana Peel, CEO, Serpentine Galleries, will oversee the call. The panel will offer challenge and insight to help us shape our thinking and select the ideas we wish to develop further.

Grosvenor Square should be a defining public space for London. However, from our research we know it has a low profile and that as a more welcoming and engaging space it would better reflect the capital’s character and appeal to a broader range of locals, visitors and Londoners.

Following our public polling last year, and with the return to Grosvenor of management responsibilities for the square, we see a chance to gather the best ideas from around the world.

The call’s simple brief can be found here and a short overview of our call here. To find out more, visit or watch the short film here.

The results of last year’s crowdsourcing for ideas and poll of Londoners can be viewed here.

This professional call for ideas closes on 26 October 2018.
