Britain’s finest landscapes rewarded

Some of the finest landscapes and buildings have won Civic Trust awards and include spaces by LUC, Vogt Landscape architects and Atkins.

The roll call of honour included nine special awards, 41 awards, 53 commendations and 38 mentions and ran the gamut from green spaces to sculpture. The special awards included a hard landscape award for Trafalgar Square worked on by Foster and Partners and Atkins. Meanwhile Manchester’s Millennium Quarter including work by BDP and Martha Schwartz won an urban design award, while a sustainability award went to eco housing with grassed roofs by BedZED in Sutton. Regional winners included Deptford’s Laban Dance Centre landscaped by Vogt and Russell Square by Land Use Consultants. Vivienne Newlands, Civic Trust awards manager said: “Award winners are projects that have a positive impact, not simply in restoration or redevelopment terms, but on the wider streetscape, on the public realm, and on the sense of place.” The Civic Trust awards started in 1959 and this year’s entrants had to have been completed between 1 January 2001 and 30 September 2003.
