RIBA AWARDS / YORKSHIRE
Chair of jury: Tony Kettle Regional representative: Carl Meddings Lay assessor: Jane Wernick ARC Niall McLaughlin Architects Client: ARC A challenging brief has led to a highly innovative moveable structure, flexible enough to provide for a variety of cultural uses. The identity of the architecture is complemented by a series of renewable-energy services which forms a technological artwork, symbolising the importance of sustainable design while at the same time reducing the running costs of the building.

BROUGHTON HALL PAVILION Hopkins Architects Client: Broughton Hall This is an extremely fine example of a contemporary pavilion set within a historic walled garden. The building is beautifully understated with a simple democratic roof plane defining the central function space, framed by symmetrical pods north and south. The detailing is similarly subtle and benefits from the highest quality of materials and workmanship.
The result is sublime and complete.
Cost: confidential. 240m 2
UNDERGROUND GALLERY, YORKSHIRE SCULPTURE PARK Feilden Clegg Bradley Client: Yorkshire Sculpture Park The new building is simple; so simple that it is almost invisible.
It complements the previous phases of development with an understated design that is the embodiment of elegance. It is carefully assembled from robust and beautiful materials, responding to its setting so subtly that the work on display in the galleries is quietly enhanced by the architecture.
