Architectural students and practicing registered architects from around the world are being asked to vote for the shortlisted project which they believe demonstrates the best architectural use of brick. The Architect’s Choice Award will be granted to the project which receives the most votes and presented at the annual Brick Awards which take place at London’s 5 star hotel Marriott Grosvenor Square on 12th November.
All shortlisted projects can be viewed on the BDA’s website, www.brick.org.uk where an online voting interface has been set up, http://www.brick.org.uk/architects-choice-award-2/. RIBA membership numbers and educational institutional details will be required and voting will close on 27th September.
The Awards are one of the top design and construction awards in the country and show just what brick – the UK’s most popular cladding material – can achieve. Last year over 100 registered architects and architectural students voted for the Carmelite Monastery, which was built for the Carmelite Sisters and completed in March 2013.
