Civic Trust Award, Special Award, Night Vision Award

Royal Festival Hall, London | Allies and Morrison

The Royal Festival Hall on the South Bank won the 'NightVision' award for its contribution to the capital's night time economy. 

Judges' comments:
This scheme has made a fantastic contribution to the public realm, bringing life and activity to the South Bank area. The reopening of this listed building marks a revival both for the fabric of the building and its position at the centre of London life. Queen's Walk has been transformed into a highly successful animated public promenade, which is now used during both day and night. A safe and welcoming space, the scheme has made a dramatic impact upon the area... The scheme has reshaped the entire environment surrounding the Royal Festival Hall, and has been critical to the renaissance of London's South Bank, providing a world class public space.
