Scottish Civic Trust - Awards PR 3 Aug 2005
Community groups asked to identify best new buildings for 2006 Civic Trust Awards. The Civic Trust, the leading urban charity which campaigns for a better built environment, is asking community groups to identify the best new buildings in the UK's cities to go forward for a Civic Trust Award.
The awards scheme is widely recognised as the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in Europe. Glasgow City Council and other local authorities from around the UK work in partnership with the Trust to organise the project entries from their own areas.
For Glasgow, the awards team is calling for entries for building projects, regeneration schemes, public art, urban design - anything that has made an impact on the local environment - built in the city between 1 January, 2003 and 30 September, 2005.
Since the Civic Trust Awards began in 1959 more than 50,000 buildings have been recognised not only for their architectural style but also for their contribution to the fabric of the local community. Every year the Awards are judged by the people really in the know - community representatives. These local advisors canvas local opinion and judge what the building means to its community. Architects, planners and access advisors provide the technical and professional support.
Vivienne Newlands, Civic Trust Awards Manager, said: "Judging for the Civic Trust Awards relies on examining the context - it is particular to each place and each building. Every new development could be a winner, if it is high quality design and also has a positive community impact."
The deadline for entries is Fri 16 Sep 2005 and anyone can enter a project with the owner's and occupier's permission. More info: www.civictrust.org.uk/ctawards
