MSA Dinner 2022 Highlights

A night to remember as the MSA Dinner makes it return

The MSA Dinner has been a main-stay on the architectural calendar for decades, however, due to the events over the course of the pandemic, it’s not been held since 2019. It was great to finally bring the dinner back to the architectural community of Manchester – a chance to get together, to celebrate the successes over the past year, and ultimately – to party. And the attendees did just that! 

 

Held for the first time at Victoria Warehouse, the venue is made up of two storage warehouses that were used during the early to mid 20th century. It was redeveloped as a music and event space in 2012 and given its current name in 2018. The MSA dinner took over ‘The Bays’ – a space made up of an adjoining bar and dinner / dancing space, built in 1932 for cotton stock, and later storage for Kellogg’s, McVitie’s and Cadbury’s; the Bay’s rich history and interesting architecture made them ideal space for our society dinner.

The event had something for everyone – delicious food, a quality bar service, music from the incredible ‘Mr Wilson’s Second Liners’, a DJ, dancing, Photo Booth and even a dedicated caricaturist who was on hand all night to turn Manchester’s most notable architects into cartoon versions of themselves. 

The night was a complete sell-out and we hope to see the dinner returning to it’s right place as a mainstay on the architectural calendar for years to come. 

Finally – we couldn’t put on events of that scale and quality without the support of our amazing sponsors. A huge thank you to – AluK, Wienerberger, Beplas, Project Four, Komastyle, Bench Master, QPSL, Solus Ceramics and of course the RIBA North West!

MSA Awards 2022 Highlights

450 architects and construction professionals came together celebrate the achievements of Manchester’s Architects at the annual MSA Awards. 

After a refreshed changed of venue, the awards evening returned to its normal slot in June. We had a sell out crowd of 450 in attendance and showcased some amazing projects from across Manchester’s architectural scene. The winners thoroughly deserved the awards and we hope that the respective teams had chance to celebrate the win and enjoy their success on the evening. The event would not be possible without the hard work of a small group of volunteers that go above and beyond to support the society, week in, week out.

 

The awards were judged by Kees Kaan.

Kees Kaan is an architect and co-founder of Rotterdam-based practice KAAN Architecten. Since 2006, he is also the Chair of the Complex Projects department at the Faculty of Architecture at TU Delft. In 2019 Kaan was appointed Chairman of the Architecture Department. Moreover, he has been a Principal Investigator at Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS) since 2016. Over the years, Kaan has built up a national and international portfolio of projects, including the Supreme Court and the Netherlands Forensic Institute in The Hague, Amsterdam Courthouse, Institut des Sciences Moléculaire d’Orsay, Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp, and the Dutch Embassy in Mozambique. Kees Kaan is an international lecturer and sits on several juries and boards, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

Kees certainly had his work cut out choosing the shortlist and winners for each category. View the winner sand judges comments.

A huge thank you should go to all the entrants for their efforts, to those shortlisted who were all of the highest quality and of course, congratulations to the worthy winners. 

Finally – we couldn’t put on events of that scale and quality without the support of our amazing sponsors. A huge thank you to – AluK, Wienerberger, Beplas, Project Four, Komastyle, Bench Master, QPSL and of course the RIBA North West!

MSA Award Winners 2022

 

Judge’s Comments

01 Commercial unbuilt

Winner: Coal Chutes

Although set in the commercial category, the project explicitly puts the community first. It operates according to the architect’s 5 sustainable de-growth principles that align perfectly with the client’s aspiration to have a light, locally sourced, affordable workspace scheme. We commend the project for its successful efforts in thoroughly implementing local materials, reusing existing structures and providing ample space for the community to inhabit with their own activity.

 

02 Commercial built

Winner: First White Cloth Hall

The project incorporates a listed heritage building which is restored, repaired and extended. The new additions present a clear hierarchy between the old and the new. The contemporary does not override the existing but ensures equal dignity, highlighting the monumental and the original. In this way, the new provides knowledge of the past.

 

03 Multi-residential Unbuilt

Winner: Phoenix Works

The project has a compact, clean, simple internal scheme and elegant appearance. The unit floorplans are functionally well resolved. Particularly impressive are the collective spaces and amenities. The attention to their design results in a high-quality domestic environment that enhances a sense of community. Additionally, the quality materialisation of the interior and the façade with the bay windows exude exceptional dignity and appeal.

 

04 Multi residential Built

Winner: Campus East Gateway Student Residences, University of York

The building is well embedded in the campus and its landscape. The attention given to framing the views and enhancing the relationship with the surrounding pastoral landscape is a remarkable feat. The architectural expression is clear and rational, and the material detailing in brick and concrete gives it refined sophistication. 

 

05 One off unbuilt

Winner: Moor House

The category was full of high-quality projects, but this project stood out with its soft and almost dreamy presentation that immediately communicates the house’s atmosphere. The project draws from the local vernacular architecture and does so in a sensible yet contemporary way, resulting in a rich mixture of materials, textures and light. Even in this design phase, it shows attention to detail expected from later execution stages. The functional distribution in the floor plan is well resolved. 

 

06 One off unbuilt

Winner: Project 465 The Firs Bowdon

The family house extension presents itself well to the public through an elegant elevation from the street. The sleek gabled volume clad in dark brick on top of a concrete base is a simple yet powerful gesture, brilliantly attached to the old structure with a refined glass link.

 

07 Community unbuilt

Winner: The Iron

An appealing architectural folly that sits beautifully in the landscape. Its complexity is hidden in the execution, which we hope to encourage by giving this accolade. Achieving the wanted texture, sloping of the walls, as well as the sharpness of the edges is quite a feat in construction—an extremely promising project.

 

08 Community built

Winner: Yoko Ono Lennon Centre

The distribution of spaces is brilliant – stacking the auditoriums results in a compact footprint and allows for a good connection with the campus. The appearance of the Centre is fitting to its programme – it is immediately recognisable by the brick colour and intricate details but imposing in the simplicity of the overall volume.

 

09 Small project

Winner: Photographers studio

As an annexe to the main house, the studio assumes its character in the same material and volume. However, detailing and appearance communicate the presence of a contemporary aesthetic, both on the outside and inside. Extremely well executed.

 

10 Future Architect

Winner: Benjamin Carter

The selected project balances well between the ever-present economic and environmental demands for reinvention and retention. The design chooses to diversify the homogeneity of the existing camps by bringing in new functions complementary to the existing architectural typologies. New additions are placed where necessary and coherently connect to the existing complex. Seeing this level of mature thinking and presentation at a student level is impressive.

 

 

New Year Message from the President

Dear Colleagues and Friends.

A New Year beckons, so it is a great time to share our vision for your Society and upcoming activities for 2022.

The past two years have been tumultuous and difficult, causing a decrease in face-to-face events, but we were delighted at the enthusiasm and high attendance for the Awards, lectures and Barbecue and we really appreciate your support. We know there is a desire for friends and colleagues to meet, share stories and enjoy each other’s company and we intend to fulfil that desire wherever possible, be it digitally or physically.

We will be focusing on creating more and better activities that our members can enjoy. In fact, our theme for 2022 is all about growth.

Growth in membership, growth in engagement with our members, growth in the range and variety of activities that we offer, growth in celebration of our members’ achievements as individuals and practices. Growth in knowledge to meet the challenges that face our profession in times to come. Growth in inspiring lectures by leaders in their fields and emerging stars, coupled with hands-on experience for our members joining the profession.

And last but not least, growth in fun and enjoyment.

Our mission is:

‘To champion and nurture the present and future architects of Manchester’

 

To help us achieve this goal, we need:

Enthusiastic and engaged members of our council – if you have a passion to get involved and help our members, join us.

Members who are willing to share with people who don’t know our work. Help spread the word. 

Ideas to improve our work and activity, tell us the kind of things you’d like to see.

Help us by supporting our sponsors – host a practice CPD or check out the useful content on our Knowledge Hub.


Please get in touch with us and help us to help you!

Email: admin@the-msa.co.uk

 

Happy New Year! And watch this space for further exciting news!

MSA President & Founder of  Hive Architects

MSA Awards 2021 Highlights

After an unprecedented 18 months, it was great to see so many people come along to celebrate the achievements of Manchester’s Architects at the annual MSA Awards. 

The sigh of relief felt across the Manchester Albert Hall was almost palpable on the night as the room started to fill to over 500 attendees. 

This year’s awards was like no other, with two years worth of projects all vying for top spot – you certainly made it hard for this year’s judge. The last couple of years have been difficult, but as a society and a community, you’ve been resilient and adaptable. You’ve kept going and produced work of the highest calibre. The number and quality of entries this year was astonishing and testament to that strength of character.

That said, our achievements as architects are allied to a wider team of other professionals, contractors, manufacturers and suppliers. And, of course, every great building needs a great client so it was a pleasure to welcome wider members of the construction value chain to come along and take part in the celebration. 

 

The awards were judged by immediate Past President of the RIBA President,  Professor Alan Jones.

For the last two years as President of the Royal institute of British Architects, he’s championed social mobility and led a reorientation of current and future architects and the RIBA itself. He has judged for the RIAS, RIBA, Civic Trust Awards and chaired the 2020 and 2021 Royal Gold Medal and the 2019 RIBA Stirling Prize so we were honoured to have him judge our awards. 

A huge thank you should go to all the entrants for their efforts, to the runners up who were all of the highest quality and of course, congratulations to the worthy winners. 

Finally – a very special thank you to the Award sponsors, Wienerberger, AluK, Beplas, Concept Cubicle Systems, and George Barnsdale windows for their generous support. Without whom, we simply couldn’t put on the level of event that we did. 

We intend to be back to our normal June slot for the awards in 2022. We can’t wait to see you all then and another selection of amazing projects.
