Two landscape architecture projects have been shortlisted for the 2010 RIBA Yorkshire White Rose Awards
The St George’s Square Revival in Huddersfield by Whitelaw Turkington Landscape Architects Ltd and the Granary Wharf project in Leeds by Capita Lovejoy have both been selected for the Landscape category.
The St George’s Square Revival is part of the Renaissance Huddersfield project and it features specialist lighting design, planting and water features which enhance the existing classical architecture while creating a public area suitable for everyday use and special events.
The Granary Wharf project is on the canalside in a key industrial district of Leeds. The public realm area houses residential and commercial buildings while retaining two acres of open space for markets and events, with new boaters’ facilities and restored graving docks.
Both RIBA and Landscape Institute members will judge the landscape award, which is sponsored by City Squared and presented in partnership with the Landscape Institute Yorkshire Branch.
The winners will be announced at a special awards evening at Sheffield City Hall on Friday 26 November.
