Structural steel groups honour Hodder and Foster

  • Comment

Hodder Associates' Corporation Street Footbridge in Manchester and Foster and Partners' Great Glasshouse at the National Botanic Garden of Wales were the overall winners of the Structural Steel Design Awards, presented by the Duke of Kent in London yesterday.

A special innovation award went to Murray Grove Flats in Hackney, the prefabricated flats designed by Cartwright Pickard. Innovation is also a major feature of the other two winners - Hodder's bridge uses a lattice structure to create a glazed curved hyperbolic paraboloid form, and Foster's glasshouse is a toroid created from a series of tubular arches, each with a constant radius of curvature.

Commended projects were: Eva Jiricna Architects' Canada Water Bus Station, Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners' Paddington Station improvements, and Chetwood Associates' Sainsbury's store at Greenwich peninsula.
