Exhibition Road wins Award

Exhibition Road has won its first award in the New London Awards Placemaking category. 

The New London Awards celebrate the best schemes in the capital both built and on the drawing board – giving recognition to the impact projects have on their surroundings and their contribution to London as well as to their architectural quality.

NLA Chairman Peter Murray, announcing the awards on NLA’s sixth birthday, said: ‘As the awards jury we have sought to reward not only excellence in design but also to recognise architecture that complements the surrounding city. The New London Awards are about buildings that sit comfortably with their neighbours and adjacent spaces and the strength of the winners is remarkable. It goes to show that London is attracting the very best in the world in terms of design and built form despite the economic downturn, and is a positive sign of what is to come.’
