THE COLLECTION, CITY & COUNTY MUSEUM

Panter Hudspith Architects Client: The Collection, Lincoln The building is broken down into five geologically inspired forms that are a direct response to the scale and character of a medieval city. The Collection is popular with visitors and staff. It works as a piece of urban design, as a catalyst for regeneration and as a museum and exhibition space; it is a triumph of detailing and craftsmanship. £7.8 million. 4,030m 2

NORTHAMPTON ACADEMY

Feilden Clegg Bradley Architects Client: United Learning Trust (ULT) The Northampton Academy has taken design for schools to a new level of excellence; it works as a place that inspires pupils and staff alike. It gives them a safe, secure, stimulating, vital and democratic environment in which to work. Coupled with excellent environmental credentials and fine detailing, the whole building has been delivered with quality and panache. £19.5 million. 2,480m

VISITOR CENTRE, ATTENBOROUGH NATURE RESERVE

Groundworks Architects Client: Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust This flagship sustainable building was placed on a small peninsula of land jutting out into a lake and cut adrift by slicing through the peninsula to form an island. The building is secured when not in use by means of a drawbridge that can be raised to make a formidable vandal-proof security barrier. £1.29 million. 410m 2
