Eight landscape projects shortlisted for 2012 Civic Trust Awards

The Civic Trust Awards winners will be announced on Friday 2 March at a ceremony hosted by the City of Edinburgh Council at The Hub in Edinburgh.

BDP’s striking campus for the University of Wales in Newport has been shortlisted for two awards, including the Selwyn Goldsmith Award for Universal Design – an award set up by the pairing of The Civic Trust Awards and the Centre for Accessible Environments (CAE).  The subtle and understated Chelsea Academy in London by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBS) and Churchman Landscape Architects has also been shortlisted in this category.

Churchman Landscape Architects also made the list with their design for the Sammy Ofer Wing at Greenwich’s National Maritime Museum. John McAslan + Partners have been listed twice for separate projects including the Stanislavsky Factory project in Moscow and for their Iron Market design in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, rebuilt just one year after the earthquake. The historic Stanislavsky Factory, saw the restoration of six buildings and apartments. In particular the run down theatre, which now stands as a premier arts centre.

Craft:pegg’s understated design for Worthing’s sea front ‘Splash Point’ has also made the shortlist. The Rainbow-Mist water feature forms the centrepiece of the space, while weathered rocks provide informal seating. Gillespies, responsible for the Warrior Square Gardens project in Southend-on-Sea, and Studio Engleback with Glenn Howells Architects have been nominated for The Triangle in Swindon.
