Description

Join us for an architect-led, behind the scenes tour of this RIBA National Award winning building, and hear from Glenn Howells Architects and Peel as they talk about what inspired them and what it means to have won this prize.

The building, described by the jury panel during the RIBA Awards process as:

"One of the most successful aspects of the building is the way it works within an excellent landscape scheme. The setting of the dockside has been fully exploited, yet this is not a normal UK design response. The absence of barriers to the water was noticeable and combined with the lack of perimeter fencing the landscape is allowed to act as an outside space that people want to be in – not an enclosed car park. It was this final aspect that persuaded the judges that this could indeed be worthy of an award – the building and its landscape can act as a blueprint for an excellent minimum standard for future phases."
