From 263 national and international entries, 86 projects were recognised by the prestigious Civic Trust Awards at a ceremony held at City Hall in Cardiff supported by Cardiff Council on Saturday 9th March 2013. Awards were presented to the best new buildings, public spaces, restorations and public art by Civic Trust Awards Patron, architect and TV presenter George Clarke and Civic Trust Awards Managing Director Malcolm Hankey. Mr Hankey commented: “The Civic Trust Awards celebrate not only design excellence, but also the relationship between structures, places, the environment and communities.
Winning projects have demonstrated architectural excellence whilst offering cultural, social or economic benefit to the local community. We are delighted to bring the 2013 Civic Trust Awards Ceremony to Wales and would like to take this opportunity to thank Cardiff Council and sponsors, Design Commission for Wales, Welsh School of Architecture/Low Carbon Research Institute, Warm Wales, Capita Symonds and Stride Treglown for their support.
