Longlisted for the 2023 Dezeen Awards
It is great to see my photography supporting two “Longlisted” entries.
Armourcoat’s Clay Lime Plaster entry, a biodegradable plaster made from natural materials. It has achieved IAC Gold status by incorporating abundant natural materials such as unfired clay, marble, limestone, and hydraulic lime making it 100 per cent cement and VOC free, biodegradable and recyclable.
The First Light Pavilion was designed by Hassell Studios and engineered by Atelier One with the executive architects of JM Architect’s overlooking the entire project and Kier Construction building the large concrete dome.
The design is based on a modern re-working of the Meridian Line. It features a curved entrance that mirrors the arc of the sun with exposed concrete visible inside the building, as well as on the front façade. Armourcoat supplied an insulated render that that reflects 20% more radiant heat and optimises the thermal performance of the building.
The judges will determine the projects that feature on the shortlists, which will be announced in October. A further round of judging by our master jury will determine the winners, which will be announced in November.
The six winners of the sustainable project categories will then battle to be crowned overall sustainable project of the year.
Dezeen Awards celebrates the world’s best architecture, interiors and design. Now in its sixth year, it has become the ultimate accolade for architects and designers across the globe.
