This year the Mayor’s Prize, which is awarded in association with the Mayor of London, recognises projects that best reflect the Mayor’s ambition for ‘Circular Economy’ as expressed through the Design for a Circular Economy Primer, part of the Good Growth by Design programme.

Selected from the shortlisted projects across all categories, it celebrates the project that best demonstrates an innovative re-use of existing buildings and or re-use of construction materials, adopting circular economy principles while securing high quality design. For the New London Awards 10-year anniversary, the Mayor’s Prize looks into the future, awarding the project that best supports the Mayor’s aims of making London a zero carbon, zero waste and zero pollution city.


Quotes from Jules Pipe

Deputy Mayor for Planning, Regeneration and Skills Jules Pipe said:

Winner
Surrey Docks Farm, Southwark by Pup Architects
 “Surrey Docks Farm is a worthy winner. It is exemplary in its approach to circular economy principles. It takes a holistic approach in addressing the climate emergency from construction to use to end of life, as well as its role in addressing social inequalities. The scheme is beautifully designed and crafted using local and ethical supply chains, from the steel stair from Croydon to the piling rig from East London or the bricks from Herrongate. It is hugely encouraging to see that even small practices, working on modest schemes, can tackle the huge challenge of the climate emergency.”
 
Highly Commended
Kingston School of Art, Kingston upon Thames by Haworth Tompkins
“I also commend the Kingston School of Art. The decision to retrofit the existing building is admirable and makes a powerful statement about the potential of our existing buildings, even for high profile schemes. The care taken with the re-use, re-purpose and re-cycle of construction waste and designing in of flexibility to support its use into the future, are lessons that the sector can learn from.”
