Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Jury Panel - formed of members of my Advisory Board and other advisors - is not responsible for making the decision about which architect is chosen: this is ZRG's decision.  However, the Advisory Board will provide ZRG with a recommendation.  During the third stage of the process in July, it is Arup's intention that the public have the opportunity to discuss the emerging ideas with the three shortlisted artists.  Public feedback will be passed onto the Advisory Board and ZRG. Again, it will ultimately be ZRG's decision which of the three architects is chosen and therefore which outline scheme is progressed further.
