Schuco have recently announced that there will be a new addition of the excellence awards for 2015. The awards will showcase the very best in design and innovation and the prizes will be presented in a special lunch time event held in June at the Saatchi gallery in Chelsea.
The previous awards (in London 2014) celebrated the very best in UK building design and had 9 categories of awards. This year will again have nine awards and although the events is recognised as being one of the major building prizes, the only stipulation is that is one Schuco system is used in every building nominated.
The judging panel includes people such as Paul Monaghan, Mary Duggan and a representative from Duggan Morris Architects. The criteria is based on ideas that demonstrate creativity and innovation and have been built in collaboration with a good manufacturing and installation process. They are also looking for something quite unique and special.
