About the Awards

The Worcestershire Architecture Awards recognise inspiring new architecture in the county and the work of Worcestershire architects. The Awards successfully engaged the wider community, promoting local architects with a public exhibition of entries at the Guildhall, Worcester, including the presentation of awards.

The exhibition will be displayed again at St Helen’s Church just down the High Street here in Worcester from 22nd September, then for 5 weeks from 13th October in the Henry Sandon Hall, which is part of the redeveloped Royal Porcelain Works.

Exhibition & Awards

Entries were assessed on the extent to which they demonstrate, in the opinion of the judges; fitness for purpose, elegance and imagination of the design, and the contribution made to the built environment or landscape setting.

Three judges were appointed by the Worcestershire Society of Chartered Architects. The judges included a representative of the local community, a practising architect, a professional involved in architectural education.
