Winner 2002

City Learning Centre, Bristol

2002 Finalists

Castle View, The Earth Centre

Castle View

"This is the highly sustainable public face of the Earth Centre in Doncaster designed to take advantage of recycling and other low-energy techniques."

Gateshead Millennium Bridge

Gateshead Millennium Bridge

"This bridge has already become an architectural and engineering icon for Gateshead and Newcastle as a result of its unique movement pattern – based on the blinking of an eye. The bridge is a wonderful example of the public impact good design can have."

Juniper House, King's Lynn, Norfolk

Juniper House

"Juniper House shows a very serious attempt to create a low-energy building. The scheme also incorporates an impressive public garden. It fits in to King’s Lynn without being a kitsch copy of an existing building."

Memorial Gardens, Peel Centre

Memorial Gardens, Peel Centre

"The Memorial Gardens in Hendon give a sense of calm, even though they are surrounded by substantial buildings. The combination of planting and hard landscaping is exemplary."

Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital

Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital

"This is the largest public building to be developed in Norfolk and has been designed and developed using the Private Finance Initiative (PFI) as a procurement route, but with a strong emphasis on effective use of design and technology. The design makes good use of natural light and airy volumes within the building. The project was completed five months early."

Persistence Works, Sheffield

Persistence Works, sheffield

"This is the UK’s first purpose-built fine art and craft studio complex, providing workspaces for 69 artists. The building is striking for its robust material – concrete – which manages to be both imposing and stylish. The workspaces are flexible and affordable."

Tamar Bridge

Tamar Bridge

"An immensely difficult problem was tackled with a major team effort. The project team had to strengthen and widen a major suspension bridge in Plymouth – but it had to stay open during construction to carry up to 40,000 vehicles a day. An alternative idea to build an additional bridge would have cost ten times as much."
