Our mission is ‘to champion and nurture the present and future architects of our city region’. This event is all about championing the excellent work that you all produce and so it’s great to see you turn out in force to celebrate the achievements of Manchester’s Architects. This year’s presentation event took place in an example of that work with The Archive, at Mayfield Depot. We were pleased to be joined on the night by over 550 friends and colleagues from across the construction industry.

We couldn’t put on events of that scale and quality without the support of our amazing sponsors. A huge thank you to Be Plas, Velux, Reynears, RGB Facades, Cosentino, James Hardie, Mansell Building Solutions, Greenlam, Imperial Bricks, Ash & Lacey, Langley, Siematic and of course the RIBA North West!

The achievements of our members and us coming together each year to celebrate that is well matched to the very definition of society. This year we received over 150 fantastic submissions. Thank you to everyone that entered and well done to all the winners.

Our independent judge for this year was Mary Duggan. Prior to establishing Mary Duggan Architects, Mary was a founding director of Duggan Morris Architects where she co-led the practice from 2004-2017. During her tenure Duggan Morris Architects received numerous industry awards for design excellence, including ten RIBA National and Regional Awards, three Civic Trust Awards, three Nominations for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award, The Stephen Lawrence Prize, The Manser Medal and consideration for the RIBA Stirling Prize for three buildings. We were delighted she could join us in person on the night to present the awards.
