Civic Trust Awards

2022 Winners Announcement

Posted on 7th March 2022

The Civic Trust Awards scheme was established in 1959 to recognise outstanding architecture, planning and design in the built environment.

As the longest standing built environment awards scheme in Europe, more than 7000 projects have been rewarded and the scheme has continued in its objective to recognise projects that have made a positive contribution to the local communities they serve.

The aim of the Civic Trust Awards is to encourage the very best in architecture, to improve the built environment for us all through design, sustainability, inclusiveness and accessibility, and also to reward projects that offer a positive cultural, social, economic or environmental benefit to their local communities.

This year, from 160 entries, 45 projects have been recognised with a Civic Trust Award or been Highly Commended. Submissions were received from the UK, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, UAE, USA and Somaliland, reflecting the awards’ continuing international reach.
