Richard Feilden Award: Allford Hall Monaghan Morris

31 October 2008

Affordable housing is just one of the sectors where the winner of the Richard Feilden Architect of the Year Award has made a mark alongside public buildings, education and offices.

Education: Penoyre & Prasad

31 October 2008

Despite the troubled Building Schools for the Future programme, which is still to produce an award-winning building, education is a sector where some of the most talented architects are working today — reflected in the strong shortlist, which made it the most difficult category to judge.

Sport & Leisure: Hopkins Architects
