Landscape architects make their mark at the Civic Trust Awards

Some of Britain's biggest-name landscape architects have helped designs win gongs at this year's Civic Trust awards, which vaunted 86 projects.

Awards went to best new public spaces and buildings, restorations and public art. Awards’ managing director Malcolm Hankey said the event celebrated design excellence and the relationship between structure, place, environment and community.

Seven special awards went to outstanding exemplars. These included Forth Valley College Campus in Stirling, with landscape by Horner + MacLennan. The Selwyn Goldsmith special award for universal design went to the Canada Water Library, with landscape by Edco Design.

Another special award went to the Olympic Park Velodrome, landscaped by Grant Associates, which also won an award for the Hive in Worcester.

Award winners included the Olympic Park masterplan and parkland, with landscape design by LDA Design and US practice Hargreaves Associates. The Olympic Stadium, with landscape by Hyland Edgar, also won an award.

Jarrold Bridge in Norwich won an award for Whitelaw Turkington (Grontmij), Lakeshore in Bristol was landscaped by Camlins while Lloyd Bore worked on landscape around New Marlow Theatre in Canterbury.

A swishy public-realm scheme for Carlos Place and Mount Street in Mayfair won an award thanks to landscape by BDP around a sculptural water feature called Silence by renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando.

Townshend Landscape Architects helped Central St Martins at King’s Cross win an award.

Winning medals, which were announced on 9 March at Cardiff City Hall, are given to projects of the highest quality design, only if they are judged to have made a positive cultural, social or economic contribution to the local community.
