The Awards, held this week at The Roundhouse Camden London, recognise excellence in UK architecture across a range of categories, from school project of the year to housing project of the year.
Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park beat off competition from projects including Sky TV’s Campus, the City of Glasgow College’s Landscape and Public Realm and the Canal Corridor at Kings Cross. Other high-profile winners on the night included the BBC Television Centre and Bloomberg’s European Headquarters in London.
The judges described the winning project as an imaginative piece of landscape-first regeneration. They said: “The scheme features clever connectivity throughout the site which has already bought people into the area and delivered a highly sustainable slot-in infrastructure ready for the next wave of new development.”
