From 125 first stage entries, seven design teams were shortlisted and asked to produce concept designs for the new Pavilion. These concepts, including a short description from each team, are below. These concepts are not the final designs but give an indication of the approach each team would take.

The concept designs were on display in a free-to-enter exhibition at Edinburgh’s City Art Centre from 21 June until 30 July 2017, with the public invited to comment on the schemes by emailing the competition organisers or via a survey at the exhibition
