Hampshire buildings in Solent Design Awards finals
A PUBLIC vote has opened to find the best designed building in the Solent area.
The Solent Design Awards seeks to recognise the stunning buildings, places or spaces across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight which inspire the community in a recession.
An expert judging panel of top architects and academics will select the winners in a number of categories alongside a “people’s poll” award, which runs until the end of the month.
Paul Grover, of the University of Ports-mouth, who is managing the awards, said: “We hope for a good response to the poll. The public’s view is as important as the professionals’ as they are the people who have to live with the design and can really attest to its true value.”
The second biennial awards, sponsored by construction group Bouygues UK, the Barker Mills Foundation, the Partnership for Urban South Hampshire (PUSH) and the University of Portsmouth, will be presented at a special dinner in Portsmouth Guildhall on November 13.
