Four wins in ten days for Flanagan Lawrence
Flanagan Lawrence continue their successful awards-run, picking up four awards for three projects over ten days.
The run began on the 6th November at the Grosvenor Hotel in London for the 2015 Concrete Society Awards, a black tie event celebrating excellence in Concrete. Their Acoustic Shells was highly commended - an achievement shared with the team at Expedition Engineering.
At the World Architecture Festival, the practice’s Wembley Theatre was highly commended for the Future Projects - Culture category. This commendation reinforces the innovative nature of the 1300 seat theatre. One of a series of cultural interventions in the emerging cityscape of Wembley, UK, the project capitalises on the role of cultural buildings in the regeneration of their surroundings in the city and community. Opening in the summer of 2016, the first production will be Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games.
Finally, on 13th November, the Acoustic Shells won The Institute of Structural Engineers Small Project Award for 2015. The judges commented how its ''wave-like form follows the acoustic function beautifully, and allowing gravity to pull the draped mesh of reinforcement into shape, then using a hand-applied render to freeze it in position, is masterful."
