    AIA/UK Design Awards 2007

    by ArchitectureWeek

    The United Kingdom chapter of the American Institute of Architects has announced the recipients of its annual awards for design excellence. This awards program honors exemplary buildings by UK architects anywhere in the world and by architects of any nationality working within the United Kingdom.

    One of the three projects to receive top honors is The Collection in the medieval English town of Lincoln. The museum by Panter Hudspith Architects was lauded as a "beautiful sculptural piece, different and really beautifully detailed... almost baronial."

    The form of the 48,000-square-foot (4,500-square-meter) museum is a response to the character and scale of its surroundings. It forms a new public square that opens out onto Temple Gardens. The architects conceived it as a series of inhabited stone blocks, making a direct link to the rampart walls of the Bishop's Palace. A route through the heart of the museum site leads into the courtyard and establishes links within its neighborhood.   >>>
