CABE dishes out first design awards of 2007

  • Comment
CABE has handed out its Festive Five Awards to the individuals and organisations that have set the standards for design in 2007.

Five individuals, public-sector organisations and private companies were honoured with the awards for their forward thinking resulting in 'great architecture and design'.

This year's awards focused on both school and inclusive design - which CABE highlights as the country's biggest design challenges.

CABE chief executive Richard Simmons said: 'School design and inclusive design are often misunderstood and poorly executed. These are two areas where standards have to rise dramatically in 2007.

'The people and projects recognised here set a benchmark for what everyone should be achieving everywhere.'

The five individuals to be acknowledged were Dick Hibdige, deputy head of the recently completed PFI Bedminster Down Secondary School; Jason Longhurst, director of the River Nene Regional Park; Tony O'Sullivan, a consultant paediatrician and a driving force behind the Lewisham Children and Young People's Centre; Sandwell council's landscape architect Tim Pritchard; and Jane Stoneham, director of the Sensory Trust.

The five public organisations honoured were the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham; Birmingham City Council; the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green, London; the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London; and North Somerset Council.

The five private companies recognised were the bptw partnership; Capita Percy Thomas; Mind the Gap Theatre; Sjolander de Cruz Architects; and Studio E Architects.
