Further recognition for UK Pavilion 'Hive'
The UK Pavilion from Milan’s 2015 Expo has won two Civic Trust Awards. At the ceremony on Friday night, the ‘Hive’ was awarded a Civic Trust Award for Pro Tem and a Special Award for Pro Tem. We are immensely proud of our work on this project; the ingenious design from Wolfgang Buttress was realised through the collaboration of a great team which also included BDP, Simmonds Studio, Hoare Lea, Squint Opera and Nottingham Trent University.
The Civic Trust Awards scheme was established in 1959 to recognise the very best in architecture, design, planning, landscape and public art. Awards are given to projects that demonstrate high quality architecture or design, have demonstrated sustainability, are accessible to all users and have made a positive cultural, social or economic contribution to the local community.
The Civic Trust is the longest standing built environment awards scheme in Europe and has given over 6,500 awards over the last 56 years.
