Join us for the launch of the 2020 York Design Awards

Launch Evening

Thursday 6th February from 6pm - 9pm

Memorial Hall, St Peter's School, Clifton, York, YO30 6AB

Our guest speaker Annalie Riches

Founding Director of Mikhail Riches Architects, London

Lecture Title: What we have learnt about housing

Annalie Riches established Mikhail Riches Architects to improve the quality of housing and neighbourhoods in the UK. Her focus is on the delivery of projects that change the perceptions of the places they touch, making enjoyable new places, as well as great homes.

Annalie contributes across all the scales of architectural practice; she is recognised for her masterplanning and strategic abilities, as well as her in-depth knowledge of housing. Annalie is also well known for her ‘hands on’ expertise in architectural design and detailing. Her projects include Velocity, the winning entry to the 2018 Infrastructure Commission Competition for providing 200,000 new homes between Oxford and Cambridge. She is also leading on Park Hill Phase 2, plus projects for Croydon Council’s company Brick by Brick.

Annalie studied architecture at Sheffield, after which she joined the circus on the static trapeze. Two years out in Paris saw her working for celebrated engineer Peter Rice. Annalie went ‘on the tools’, building her own house, Whatcotts Yard in 2002 – she did all the electrics and plumbing herself, knowing these trades are the most expensive. The project subsequently won the 2004 RIBA / AJ first Building award.

Getting to the Venue

The event will be in the school’s Memorial Hall. The initial reception and networking will be in the school’s reception area which is adjacent via a short corridor to the Hall.

There is parking available at the rear of the school and very limited at the front of the school. Like most venues, the capacity, whilst reasonable is not limitless so we should encourage people to park in public car parks such as Bootham Row (YO30 7BP) or Marygate (YO30 7DT). There should be no problem for disabled parking at the venue.

Organiser York Design Awards

Organiser of 14th Annual York Design Awards Launch Evening

York Design Awards celebrate and encourage good design in the city. Good architecture and sensitive building restoration play an important part in what makes York such a special place, routinely topping UK cities’ quality of life surveys.

York Design Awards’ mission is to support that for the future and to encourage designers of new developments in the city to maintain the very highest standards – to create buildings and spaces that ‘delight’.

The York Design Awards aims to recognise the importance of new construction and landscape projects in the city, celebrating ‘the spaces in between’, the setting of buildings plus open space and public realm.

The principal aim of the York Design Awards is to encourage architects, developers, owners, planners, conservationists, to aspire to, achieve, and ensure excellence in new build and in conservation schemes within the City of York Council local authority boundary (completed within the previous three years).
