The competition to design a new Thames crossing at Nine Elms in south London has received 74 entries.
A shortlist for the £40M pedestrian and cyclist bridge will be announced early next month by Wandsworth Council.
Entrants cannot yet be named under EU procurement rules, but the local authority said the competition had attracted “some of the biggest names in the architecture and engineering”.
Each design proposal is now undergoing a detailed technical assessment. In March, the competition’s jury panel will recommend a shortlist of up to four teams to go through to the next competitive stage and develop more detailed plans.
A winner will be announced in June.
The competition’s jury panel includes Wandsworth Council leader Ravi Govindia, Lambeth councillor Joanne Simpson, architect Graham Stirk, engineer Henry Bardsley and CABE chair Pam Alexander.
Govindia, said: “We challenged the world’s designers to come up with creative solutions to a very complex set of design, engineering and transport challenges. The response is testament to the exceptional talent out there. We have now begun to analyse each proposal in detail and I encourage Londoners to explore these ideas for themselves and to tell us what they think.
“To succeed this bridge must be two things at once. It must be a beautiful piece of architecture and a valuable new transport link. This is what our growing city needs and thanks to this competition we now have more than 70 different approaches to consider.”
A TfL transport study said the Nine Elms to Pimlico bridge has a strong business case and would provide another valuable route through central London to support sustainable travel. The scheme has the support of the Mayor of London.
