Rewarding the very best in architecture, design, planning, public realm and public art

Civic Trust Awards 2010 Winners

Over 50 projects from the UK, Ireland and Spain have been recognised by the prestigious Civic Trust Awards at a ceremony held at St George’s Hall in Liverpool. The Awards were presented to the best new buildings, public spaces, restorations and public art by Civic Trust Awards Patron, architect and TV presenter George Clarke.

The 2010 Civic Trust Awards attracted over 330 entries and winning projects demonstrating excellence in design whilst offering a cultural, social or economic benefit to the local community.

Civic Trust Awards Managing Director, Malcolm Hankey said “we were delighted to see such a diverse range of projects submitted for consideration. The Civic Trust Awards celebrate not only design excellence, but also the relationship between structures, places, the environment and local communities. This year’s group of winners successfully illustrate how this relationship can produce effective and imaginative solutions.”
