An international jury has selected a shortlist of 62 London schemes for the inaugural New London Awards, launched by NLA to recognise the capital’s best projects.
Out of a total of some 316 projects submitted – either completed within the past two years or on the drawing board – these demonstrate the range of current development activity in London and the wealth of design talent within the capital.
The international panel of experts in architecture and urban design, including David J Burney, Commissioner of New York City’s Department of Design and Construction, Dominique Alba, Director of the Pavillon de L’Arsenal in Paris and Riccardo Marini, City Design Leader for Edinburgh City Council, selected winners across twelve broad sectors of the built environment: from homes to hotels; museums to malls; offices to outside spaces; stations to stadia; schools to service infrastructure; retrofit to restoration.
Winning and commended schemes will be announced at an awards lunch held at The Guildhall in the City of London on Tuesday 12 July 2011, which will also mark NLA’s sixth anniversary. Projects have been awarded not only for their architectural quality but also for the impact they have on the surrounding context.
