The shortlist for the Jane Drew Prize 2000, which rewards innovation in art, architecture and engineering, was announced last week. The nominees were Julia Barfield, David Marks and Jane Wernick for the BA London Eye; the director of the new Walsall Art Gallery, Peter Jenkinson; and MUF, the all-female art and architecture collective. The judging panel commended the Wheel team for 'showing the public the huge enjoyment architecture and engineering can bring'. Peter Jenkinson who commissioned Caruso St John to design the Walsall Art Gallery, was commended for bringing Walsall 'a new form of civic identity.'

Meanwhile MUF, nominated for the second time was selected for its work on a series of pilot projects in the Midlands for the Scarman Trust. The judges spoke of an 'exploration of techniques of participation which use accessible and contemporary strategies.' The winner will be announced on 12 June.
