Brick Awards 2013 shortlist revealed

The Brick Development Association (BDA) has announced the shortlist for the 2013 Brick Awards, one of the top design and construction awards in the country.

There are 13 awards split into three categories: housing, building and landscape, and technical and craft. There is also the Supreme Award – the Brick Development Association Building of the Year, judged to be the best overall project from the 14 award winners.

2012 saw a new category in the annual Brick Awards, the Architect’s Choice Award. This award is open to any architectural student or practicing registered architect from around the world who can vote for the shortlisted project they believe demonstrates the best architectural use of brick. It will be granted to the project which receives the most votes. Last year, the North London Hospice designed by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris received over 80 votes and went on to win the award. An online voting interface has been set up on the BDA’s website and closes mid September. RIBA membership numbers and educational institutional details will be required.

Now in its 37th year, anticipation is growing for the BDA Awards which will be presented at London’s Marriott Grosvenor Square Hotel on 14th November. To book tickets and/or tables at the awards, please contact The Brick Development Association on 020 7323 7030 or email brick(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)brick.org.uk.
