Robin Lee and 6a Architects land places on Civic Trust Awards shortlist

  • Comment

Robin Lee Architecture’s Wexford County Council Headquarters and 6a Architects’ South London Gallery are finalists in this year’s Civic Trust Awards

The two projects by small practices are among the 52 schemes shortlisted for the prestigious design awards.

The Hepworth gallery in Wakefield and Turner Contemporary in Margate, both by David Chipperfield Architects, also made the list.

Hawkins\Brown’s Corby Cube and John Lyall Architects’ Pudding Mill Lane Pumping Station in London are others in the running.

Now more than 60 years old, the Civic Trust Awards recognise outstanding contributions to the quality and appearance of the built environment.

Both Will Alsop’s Michael Faraday Community School in Southwark, London and Gareth Hoskins’ National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh were shortlisted.

International projects included John McAslan + Partners’ Haiti Iron Market and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners Las Arenas bullring conversion project in Barcelona, Spain.

A newly established Selwyn Goldsmith Award for Universal Design recognising accessible buildings has four finalists. They are Lewis & Hickey’s Westfield Folk House in Mansfield, Feilden Clegg Bradley’s Chelsea Academy in London, Petersen Williams’ Priory Church in Wales and University of Wales, Newport by BDP.

The winners will be announced on 2 March at The Hub in Edinburgh during a ceremony presented by TV presenter and architect George Clarke.

Civic Trust Awards managing director Malcolm Hankey: ‘I would like to take this opportunity to thank our local assessor teams, all of whom volunteer for the role and give up their valuable time to assist us with the judging process.

‘All domestic projects are visited and assessed on their architectural excellence, sustainability credentials, accessibility for all users and positive civic contribution. Once again, the judging process has been rigorous and all the finalists thoroughly deserve their success.’
