Nominations in Category

Gasholder Park - Argent / Bell Phillips Architects

Architecture - Mixed Use - Constructed

- Silver

Gasholder Park, a tranquil new green space in the heart of King’s Cross, open for the public to enjoy. A circular lawn on the side of the Regent’s Canal, the park sits inside the carefully restored guide frame of a Grade II Victorian gasholder, Gasholder No. 8, with a contemporary steel canopy encircling the edge, in a beautiful juxtaposition of old and new.

Switch House - Tate Modern / Herzog & de Meuron

Architecture - Mixed Use - Constructed

- Silver

Tate Modern is the world’s most visited museum of modern and contemporary art. In its next stage of development the vision is to establish a new model for museums of modern and contemporary art, by fully integrating the display, learning and social functions of the museum, strengthening links between the museum, its locality and the city. Tate Modern has changed London since 2000. The impact it has had on urban design and the development of the South Bank and Southwark, has been as substantial as its influence on the city’s artistic, cultural and social life. The result is a new yet symbiotic reading that is distinct and unique along the skyline of London.

Architecture - Mixed Use - Constructed

- Gold
