LANDSCAPING AND CIVIL ENGINEERING CONTRACTOR:
The judges greatly admired the way in which value for money has been delivered to great effect through the structural engineers' creative thinking and confidence in eschewing complex construction techniques - instead putting faith in simplicity and skilled craftsmanship. The wave-like form follows the acoustic function beautifully, and allowing gravity to pull the draped mesh of reinforcement into shape, then using a hand-applied render to freeze it in position, is masterful.
