In pictures: the 2017 AJ Architecture Awards

  • Comment

Revellers at the AJ Architecture Awards last night were entertained by Dara O Briáin, a popcorn tricycle and a magician – here are some of the best pictures of the night

The biggest victor of the evening, which the Irish comedian hosted, was Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands. The practice took home first prize in two categories, including Housing Project of the Year for its Paradise Gardens scheme, and was named AJ Architect of the Year. 

Architects attending the special ceremony also enjoyed a live brass band and took part in a fun casino in aid of homelessness charity Crisis. Afterwards legendary DJ Normski entertained the crowd.

There was yet more success for Banbury-based Acanthus Clews Architects whose ‘beautifully handled’ Warwick Hall Community Centre – recent winner of AJ Retrofit of the Year 2017 – picked up both Heritage Project of the Year and the coveted Design of the Year.

Reiach and Hall also came away with a pair of major accolades: its Nuclear and Caithness Archives building in Wick, Scotland was named Public Building of the Year and was also handed the AJ Editor’s Choice Award.

The AJ Architecture Awards were held at an exclusive gala dinner on 7 December in the Grosvenor House Hotel, central London.
