Terry Farrell's 1962 Blackwall Tunnel ventilation shafts, one of which passes through the Millennium Dome, have been given Grade II-listed building status by arts minister Alan Howarth. The 1964 Lilian Baylis School in Lambeth by Architects Co-Partnership was awarded the same status; while Bristol's Cathedral Church of Saints Peter and Paul, by the Percy Thomas Partnership, won Grade II* protection. Lillington Gardens Estate in Westminster; 1 Park Lane, a Sheffield house by Patrick Guest; and Gerard Goalen's Church of Our Lady of Fatima in Harlow were all given Grade II status.
Martin Richardson Architect has won another award for its Trootsplein social housing project in The Hague (above). The scheme bagged the prize for the best architectural achievement in the Netherlands administrative centre, and was described by the judges as 'an urban space of simplicity and beautiful proportions'.
Last year it was given a RIBA award for architecture.
