New London Awards 2012 shortlist revealed

Tuesday 19 June 2012

Projects ranging from a small boat perched on top of the Southbank Centre to the entire programme of Olympic legacy masterplans figure on the shortlist of the New London Awards, revealed this morning.

An international jury selected the shortlist of London schemes for the New London Awards, launched last year by NLA to recognise the capital’s best projects across all sectors of the built environment. The schemes – either completed within the past two years or on the drawing board – demonstrate the range of current development activity in London and the wealth of design talent within the capital. But judges felt that they also raised concerns about how that standard – particularly highlighted by a rich crop of education projects coming forward this year – might be maintained in future.

“The New London Awards shortlist provides an impressive benchmark for new architecture in London and a range of exemplar projects for anyone contemplating building in London”, said Peter Murray, Chairman of NLA and New London Awards Jury Chair. “Perhaps Education secretary Michael Gove might take notice. The majority of our jurors are from overseas – Sweden, USA, France, and one is from Scotland. They were unanimous in praising the overall quality of the education submissions – buildings that were commissioned several years ago but would not now be possible under the policies of Mr Gove's department."

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 L'Atelier Parisien d'Urbanisme (APUR) in Paris, Riccardo Marini, City Design Leader for Edinburgh City Council, and Monica von Schmalensee, CEO/VD, Partner with White, selected winners across 12 broad sectors of the built environment: from homes to hotels; offices to outside spaces; stations to stadia; schools to service infrastructure; retrofit to restoration. This year there were also new categories on healthcare, masterplans and temporary structures.

Winning and commended schemes – as well as an award for the New Londoner of the Year – will be announced at an awards lunch held at The Guildhall in the City of London onTuesday 10 July 2012. Projects have been awarded not only for their architectural quality but also for the impact they have on the surrounding context.

A new People's Choice Award in association with will also be awarded; the winner selected by public vote from all shortlisted projects.

All shortlisted projects will feature in a 12-month exhibition at the NLA galleries at The Building Centre and the 2012/2013 edition of the New London book.

All projects submitted – with an estimated total value of over £10 billion – were subject to an extensive process of review by an expert London–based panel ahead of the jury being convened. Judges and expert assessors sought projects that contributed to and enhanced NLA’s vision for New London: a city that is sustainable, civilised and egalitarian, that seeks to improve the quality and standards of new design and respects its rich mix of old and new, that supports the regeneration of its towns, and that strives to improve the usability of its streets and public spaces.

Commended and winning projects were judged to be those that contributed most to their urban environment and local community through design excellence, showed a respect for context and demonstrated innovative and efficient use of resources in their construction, maintenance and proposed lifespan.
