The City of London has invited nominations for the inaugural City of London Building of the Year award
Organised by the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects (WCCA) the free-to-enter competition allows anyone to nominate a building which meets the award criteria.
The jury will be looking for buildings that ‘support the ambitions of the City of London in delivering a world class working environment’.
They will also be assessing the quality of the architectural design as well as the impact the building has on the city street scene. Buildings may be new or refurbished and they should have been completed since September 2013.
The awards will be judged by a jury chaired by Paul Finch, programme director of the World Architecture Festival and editorial director of the Architectural Review and Architects’ Journal.
Jury members include the Master of the WCCA, Geoffrey Purves and Upper Warden Peter Murray.
Murray said: ‘The City of London is home to some very fine examples of contemporary architecture. We are keen to support good design and to encourage City businesses to do so in the future.’
The first award will be presented at a formal lunch in the Armourers’ Hall on 16 September 2015, nominations should be received by Monday, 29 June.
Nominations should be emailed to The Clerk of the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations only need to list the name and address of the building; photographs and further details can be included if available.
