AJ100: BDP keeps top spot

  • Comment

BDP has retained its top spot in the AJ100 – the definitive list of Britain’s biggest architecture practices

Despite failing to add to the 295 qualified architects on its books over the last 12 months, the giant kept ahead of second and third place practices Foster + Partners and Atkins which had also seen little change in staff numbers since 2009 (280 and 241 qualified UK architects respectively).

Meanwhile Michael Hopkins and his practice received a brace of special accolades at the AJ100 awards dinner last night (AJ 18.05.2011).

As well as picking up the AJ100’s Greatest Contribution to the Profession award for 2011, his firm won the Building of the Year prize for the second year in a row. Having won the title in 2010 with its Kroon Hall at Yale, Hopkins landed this year’s award with its much-praised 2012 Olympic velodrome project.

Hopkins Architects, ranked 40th in the AJ100 table, also scooped a larger haul of RIBA Awards than any other practice this year, bagging a quartet of accolades.

Other AJ100 Awards:

Practice of the Year: Hawkins/Brown
Highest new entrant: Nicholas Hare Architects
Fastest growing practice: Rolfe Judd
Employer of the Year: Architecture PLB
International Practice of the Year: RTKL
Sustainable Practice of the Year: AHMM
