Shortlist unveiled for Leeds Architecture Awards

Feilden Clegg Bradley, dla, Hawkins\Brown, and tp bennett all have projects shortlisted in the Leeds Architecture Awards, which returns after four years away.

Taking place for the first time since 2019, the awards are a collaboration between Leeds Civic Trust, Leeds Society of Architects, Leeds City Council and the Royal Institute of British Architects.

More than 50 entries were received earlier this year across five categories – cultural projects, new buildings, altered buildings and public realm and landscape.

A shortlist of 15 has been announced, with the winners due to be revealed at a ceremony at the Howard Assembly Room on 1 November.

The awards were open to schemes completed between July 2018 and June this year. Organisers included a cultural projects category as a nod to activity taking place in the city as part of LEEDS 2023.

The shortlisted schemes and architects are:
