Civic Trust Award 2020
The Potterrow Development in Edinburgh wins a Civic Trust Award 2020.
The Civic Trust Awards were originally established in 1959 to recognise outstanding architecture, urban design and landscape, which improve the quality of life for local communities.
Awards are given for buildings and schemes which were architecturally outstanding and made positive differences to their local community. Each entry is judged by a voluntary panel including an Architect, Inclusive Design Advisor, a representative from the Local Planning Authority and a Local Community Representative.
This years awards ceremony took place on Friday the 6th March at the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester. It was here that the Potterrow Development, which includes the Bayes Centre received a Civic Trust Award. Awards are given to projects which make an excellent contribution to the quality and experience to the built environment.
The judges said:
“The Bayes Centre in the Potterrow Development provides the final piece in the University of Edinburgh’s significant new city block – with an elegant suite of buildings. This is a significant piece of the city and the block has now bedded into the fabric of Edinburgh.”
