Comment on: Awards should be about excellence, not messages
Big project wins one year - cue outrage on behalf of the unsung, ‘worthier’ projects.
More down to earth project, innovative in its process and doing a lot with a little, wins the next year - cue the outrage at lack of bling/complexity etc
Blah blah. We all know that the world needs balance. We need the soaring architectural ambition, complex feats of structural wizardry and awe inspiring beauty as much as we need transformative and uplifting approaches to the stuff of our daily lives - housing. The most important thing is to make sure we keep that balance. In that spirit it seems pretty appropriate that this year the pendulum has swung to a project like Goldsmith St.
The positivity of awards is just the feed of critics...
Thank you Manchester. The cynical use of the pre-fix 'co' has to stop.
So short-sighted. Looks like a great proposal.

They are asking people to pay £50+VAT to enter this competition... cheeky.
