PORTICO Project Highly Commended at the Inaugural Civic Voice Design Awards
July 23, 2015
Civic Voice has announced the winners of the Civic Voice Design Awards last Friday, with our PORTICO Project being Highly Commended. Max Farrell, project leader for the Farrell Review of Architecture and the Built Environment, said:
“In this first year there were 62 entries in three categories submitted by community groups which, in itself, is a remarkable indicator of the importance that communities attach to good design. These schemes, ranging from major Heritage Lottery Funded projects to smaller community initiatives, show that communities are keen to celebrate high quality design when they see it. The shortlisted entries clearly demonstrate communities’ desire to say ‘yes’ to development, when they have had a chance to participate in a meaningful way. Due to the high quality of entrants, we decided to award a winner and give three highly commended schemes in each category”.
