SCOTTISH DESIGN AWARDS ISSUE CALL FOR ENTRIES

With 2011 now in its last gasp The Scottish Design Awards have issued a call for entries for their 2012 awards program, a highlight in the architectural and design calendar.

As ever the event aims to recognize the best graphic and architectural design in Scotland. It offers a unique platform from which designers and architects can come together to showcase their talent.

No other awards process brings together these related though distinct disciplines, offering both sectors an opportunity to come together and applaud the achievements being made in the creative sphere.

Entries for the award must be received no later than Friday, March 9, but anyone quick out of the blocks with a submission prior to January 6 will receive a 20% discount.

The annual architectural and design banjoree will culminate in a gala dinner this summer to provide a much needed fillip to an industry recovering from the ravages of the recession.

This year’s judges include; Duncan Whatmore, Urban Design Consultant at Terry Farrell & Partners; Catherine Slessor, editor of the Architectural Review; Stephen Hodder, chairman of Hodder & partners; Gillian Horn, partner at Penoyre & Prasad; Jim Heverin, associate director of Zaha Hadid Architects; Jason Flanagan, director of BFLS; Richard Woods, senior associate director of Capita Symonds; Adrian Griffiths, owner Chapman Taylor and Gerry Grams, design adviser for Glasgow City Council.

MISSION IN POSSIL? CONCRETE GARDEN IN POSSIL WINS MAJOR DESIGN AWARD

Possil Park has today shed its reputation for crime and deprivation after one of Britain’s top planners, Peter Rees, chief planning officer at the City of London, bestowed the run down Glasgow district with his prestigious chairman’s award at the Scottish Design Awards.

In what was a surprise decision at the glamorous bash, which aims to celebrate the very best architecture and design which the country has to offer, the community backed garden of rusty corrugated iron, concrete planters and packing crate trellises saw off competition from some big budget competition to walk off with the title.

Designed by erz Ltd the Concrete Garden brings vacant and derelict land back into interim use for food growing, a prospect which clearly whetted the appetite of jury chairman, Peter Rees, chief planning officer at the City of London, who chose the project for his Chairman’s award. Rees said: “I chose this because I feel that however bad things get, however run down an area becomes there is always something you can do to enhance the area. The community can always get involved to make their surroundings better. You don’t have to do a lot to make a place.

“To me this is a beacon of hope for the future and evidence that even if the major projects can’t be executed in the near future at least we can plant seeds.”

Gokay Deveci meanwhile has scooped his second award in as many days after securing top honours at this year’s Scottish Design Awards for Tigh-na-cladach (House by the shore) – 24hrs after winning a RIBA award for the same scheme. Deveci walked away with the Grand Prix award after the judging panel lauded the first Passivhaus accredited homes to be delivered by a UK housing association.

Gerry Grams, Glasgow City Council’s design adviser and SDA judge, commented. “This is a small, beautifully crafted project with quite a low budget but attention to detail is everything and I think that’s what shines through. You can get a large elaborate project which does nothing for you but sometimes the smallest things which have a lot of attention to detail and are crafted well by the designers for their clients are the things that inspire you more than anything.”

Gordon Benson was recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award for services to architecture at the event, an opportunity for today’s top architects to give their appreciation to someone who inspired a generation with his innovative fusion of modernism and Scottish vernacular.

LDN Architects meanwhile were recognised for the breadth of their talent as well as its quality, with the practice winning an exceptional four separate awards for Edinburgh’s Usher Hall, University of Edinburgh Business School, the Bread Street offices of Buro Happold and Morningside Parish Church named practice of the year.

A full list of Scottish Design Awards winners is at www.scottishdesignawards.com.

Our panel of judges was chaired by Peter Rees, chief planning officer for the City of London and included; Ian Goodfellow, partner at Penoyre & Prasad; Andy Theobald, senior partner at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Gavin Miller, partner at Rick Mather Architects, Robert Maxwell, partner at Allies and Morrison, Gerry Grams, city design adviser, Glasgow City Council and Tracy Meller, associate at Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners.

Graeme Massie Architects named Architect of the Year

We are delighted to announce that Graeme Massie Architects have been awarded Scottish Design Awards in all 3 categories for which they were nominated, including the category of ‘Architect of the Year’.

Categories for which the practice won awards are:

• Architect of the Year
• Public Realm / Landscaping
• Place Making / Master Planning

The award for Public Realm / Landscaping was made for the practice’s recently completed redevelopment of Oxford’s Bonn Square, a project that was the result of an open RIBA organised design competition in 2005. The award for Place Making was made for the master planning of Reykjavik’s Old Harbour on behalf of Associated Icelandic Ports. The Old Harbour master plan is the practice’s third major master planning project in Iceland, following on from master plans for Reykjavik’s Vatnsmyri district and the centre Akureyri in the country’s north, all of which were won through open international competition.
