In Search of the best new architecture in Norwich and Norfolk

The Norfolk Association of Architects, The Norwich Society and Civic Voice, the national charity for the civic movement, have launched the search for the best new architecture in the county as part of their 2021 Norwich + Norfolk Design and Craftsmanship Awards. These biennial awards celebrate outstanding buildings and places in the county. A presentation ceremony will be held this Autumn.

The awards will go to projects that are well designed, meet the needs of their users and also contribute to the public enjoyment of places.

The Community category, which is free to enter, promotes projects or buildings by community groups. This was won by Lyng Community Hall at DCA19 not just for its stylish and useable design, but also for its fund-raising and community involvement. Kett's Heights was also commended as a green public space that was rejuvenated by a volunteer group. The winner of the Community category will automatically be submitted for the national Civic Voice Design Awards.

Nominations are now open and entries can be submitted on-line at the DCA website until Friday 16th. July. To be eligible, projects must have been completed between July 2019 and end of May 2021. Full details can be found at
