Good year for The Roses, with a record number of entries received
August 16 2005
Nominations for this year’s Roses Design Awards are now closed. As Prospect went to press the architecture judging panel are preparing to meet in Liverpool to review all of the entries, which are submitted from design teams working anywhere outside of the M25. The judges for this year’s awards are: Jeremy Dixon, of Dixon Jones; David Page, of Glasgow-based Page/Park Architects; Neil Gillespie, of Edinburgh-based, Reiach and Hall Architects; Penny Lewis, editor of Prospect; Chris Murray, director of the Academy for Sustainable Communities; Belinda Irlam-Mowbray, of RIBA North West; Paul Spooner, of English Partnerships; and Heather Emery, of the NWDA.
This is the fourth year of the Roses architectural categories and we have received a record number of entries for categories that cover housing, commercial projects, regeneration and public building. Last year the Grand Prix award for the best building of all of the winners was won by the City of Manchester Stadium, by Arup.
The short-listed buildings will be published in the next issue of Prospect and the winners will be announced at the Award Ceremony, which will be held on Thursday, 13 October 2005, at the Palace Hotel, in Manchester.
The architectural entries are submitted in the following categories; Best Housing, Best Commercial Project, Best Public building and Rewarding Regeneration.
The Roses architectural categories are organised in parallel with design categories covering other creative industries which include Graphic Design, Design Crafts, Digital Media and Product Design.
The Symphony is a development for Downing, designed by Falconer Chester in a building that once was Liverpool Children\'s Hospital. The scheme was designed to retain the character of the existing building, linking across a light filled courtyard to a contemporary series of new apartments.
