Landscape architecture projects shortlisted for Yorkshire White Rose

Two landscape architecture projects have been shortlisted for the 2010 RIBA Yorkshire White Rose Awards.

Both the St George’s Square Revival in Huddersfield and the Granary Wharf project in Leeds have been shortlisted for the landscape category of the award.

The St George’s Square Revivial in Huddersfield was designed by Whitelaw Turkington Landscape Architects, and features specialist lighting alongside planting and water features to create a public space suitable for both everyday use and special events.

The Granary Wharf project in Leeds was designed by Capita Lovejoy, and is situated beside a canal in the industrial district.  The project includes two aces of open space amongst residential and commercial buildings, with new boaters’ facilities and restored graving docks.

The landscape award is sponsored by City Squared and will be judged by both RIBA and Landscape Institute members. 

The winners will be announced on  Friday 26 November at an awards ceremony at Sheffield City Hall.
