EAA Awards 2011

EAA Award winners – Review by Edinburgh architect Rebecca Wober:

Will Tunnell beat the Burns building by Simpson and Brown, winning the prize for a new category: Ambassador building, (for buildings completed outwith the Edinburgh chapter) with his sensitive house in the isle of Coll. The Studio DuB design for the Bothy in the Borders, entirely reviving an ancient pile of stones, was described by one of the 4 judges, Ian Stewart (of BDG McColl) as a “Delightful reinterpretation of classic scottish vernacular – quite eclectic” by the judges but the Conservation and Regeneration category prize was won by an altogether more recent history, LDN’s Business school which adds to the Robert Matthew university complex in Edinburgh, facing onto Buccleuch Place, LDN had three other buildings shortlisted in this category making it the most competitive section. In the Small Projects category there was no overall winner but Craig Amy received two Commendations for his shortlisted projects. Building of the year was won by Kingsland primary school in Peebles by Archial. Stewart remarked in his opening speech that the panel of judges of which 2 were architects, were unanimous in their selection, proving the strenght of the prizewinning projects. He also mused on the criteria they applied and concluded that the buildings had been judged on one main aspect: how they perform for the people- the users and clients- for the positive ways in which they had improved people’s lives.
