BD Architect of the Year Awards 2017 Shortlist

The 13th edition of the awards will take place on Wednesday 8 March 2017 at London ExCeL’s Platinum Suite, alongside Ecobuild, the UK’s largest and number one event for specifiers across the built environment.

Alison Brooks named UK’s best architect

Olympic architects also honoured at ceremony in London

Housing design specialist ABA, the business founded by Canadian-born architect Alison Brooks, has been named the UK’s best architecture practice at the Architect of the Year Awards in London.

The judges deemed contribution to housing design by Alison Brooks particularly worthy of celebration at a time when housing delivery in the UK had dropped to its lowest levels since the 1920’s.

Alison Brooks said it was an award shared by every “unsung” housing architect who has been quietly fighting for good design to prevail. “It’s hugely important for us to have won this award after many years of very hard work and commitment to the cause of good housing design. The recognition is very important to us. It’s a sign of confidence in what we have been trying to do for many years. But one of the nicest things about this award is that there’s a community of unsung heroes working in housing who are prepared to fight for good design quality every step of the way.”

Other award winners included the architects of the Olympic Eton Manor venue, Stanton Williams, and the architect behind the ground-breaking design of the Halley IV Antarctic Research Station for the British Antarctic Survey, Hugh Broughton.

Architect of the Year Awards 2010

Major architectural award for John Hope Gateway Centre at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

The John Hope Gateway Centre, the leading visitor attraction at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE), has picked up another accolade after the firm which designed it was named Public Building Architect of the Year award in the prestigious Architect of the Year Awards.
Edward Cullinan Architects picked up the award for their work on the £15.7 million John Hope Gateway, which has been a major tourist and business success since opening in October 2009, and the Herbarium Library Wing at Kew Gardens in London.
Since opening, visitor numbers to the Garden have increased by a third to 600,000 and turnover in catering in venues across the Garden – which is provided by Sodexo Prestige Scotland – has more than doubled to almost £2 million.
The Gateway Centre was also named Best Unusual Venue in Scotland in this year’s Scottish Event Awards.
Professor Stephen Blackmore, Regius Keeper at RBGE, said: “I am thrilled that the John Hope Gateway has won the public architect of the year award for Edward Cullinan Architects, who were great people to work with. Our two teams really clicked and the result is a beautiful building that complements the garden landscape. It helps make our business more sustainable at a time when there are immense pressures on public funding.”
Roddy Langmuir of London-based Edward Cullinan Architects, said: “This is an award for good work by a great team – clients and designers evolving a specific solution for the Gardens that will help them communicate the interdependency of plants and our daily lives. We arranged all the activities under a single roof to help them spin-off each other and it’s good to see how well the public have adopted the new Gateway – a sustainable business in the making”.
The John Hope Gateway – which was named after the eminent 18th century teacher and botanist, who was RBGE’s Regius Keeper from 1761 to 1786 – can cater for venues for meetings, confernces, weddings, corporate events and product launches.
Paul Mitchell, operations manager for Sodexo Prestige Scotland at RBGE, said: “The Gateway Centre is a beautifully designed building that is a real pleasure to work in. It has now firmly established itself as one of the most popular places in Edinburgh to eat, visit or to host a business event.”
