Hopkins Architects won the Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award from the British Construction Industry Association in mid-October for their design of the London 2012 Velodrome. The Prime Minister’s Award takes into account a particularly wide range of criteria including whole-life cost, sustainability, economic and social value and cost in use, as well as the BCIA general criteria of design quality, client satisfaction, safety and team working.
“Not only does the Velodrome represent a fantastic investment in sport,” the Mayor of London Boris Johnson says, “it’s a world class achievement in British architecture and design. Its distinctive sweeping roof is already a new icon for London which has transformed the landscape of Stratford.”
The Velodrome is featured in the Nov/Dec issue of Fabric Architecture magazine.
