On 14 Novemeber Academicians, friends and finalists from around the UK and Europe gathered at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London to announce the winners of The Urbanism Awards for 2015. The ceremony celebrated the Cities, Towns, Neighbourhoods, Streets and Places that have demonstrated innovation and excellence during our summer assessment visits.
Paul Finch, Director of the World Architecture Festival and Editorial Director of both the Architectural Review and Architects’ Journal, was our guest speaker, and gave an engaging and critical talk, touching on government involvement/interference in urban affairs.
Ian McMillan, the Academy’s poet-in-residence, brought our 15 finalists to life through recitals of his evocative urban poetry.
