Civic Trust Awards 2014 – The Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation

0362-SK-Rivington-Enterprise-065Launched in 1959, the Civic Trust Awards is one of the oldest built environment awards schemes in Europe.  From cafes to churches to housing and hospitals, the Civic Trust Awards have rewarded over 6,500 projects which have made a difference to local people and communities by providing the design and facilities which have made better places for people.

The Civic Trust Awards are unique.  They recognise the best in the built environment, from architecture to planning, townscape to infrastructure – but they are about so much more than this.  They recognise the public realm in its wider context, and their continuing belief that development should be for the benefit of people – those who use it and those who just pass by.  The winners are not just architecturally advanced, exciting, innovative and striking.  They are also of benefit to the local community, and the Trust strive to ensure that every entry is assessed by a local person, whose role is to canvass and represent the views of the people who use of see the scheme as part of their environment.

We are delighted that The Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation at the London South Bank University has been selected as one of the National/International Winners and will receive a Civic Trust Award, Commendation or Community Recognition at the Civic Trust Ceremony, to be held at The Winter Gardens in Blackpool, on Friday 7th March 2014.
