Creative proposals wanted for the future of the concert platform
Published Monday, 20 January 2020
Bromley Council is looking for creative and community-minded business proposals to reactivate the cherished concert platform in Crystal Palace Park.
In 1996, Ian Ritchie Architects won a competition to design a permanent concert platform in Crystal Palace Park. The structure, which is largely made of oxidised Corten A steel, was designed on the principles of nature, gravitas, levitas and simplicity. It hosted its first concert in August 1997, and won the Civic Trust Award in 1998 as well as being shortlisted for the Stirling Prize the same year.
