Seven months after opening, It looks like Tŷ Pawb is now beginning to turn quite a few heads from across the country and beyond!
Following on from a fantastic review in The Observer and after making it on to the Royal Academy of Art’s top 10 exhibitions to see in the UK we’re now delighted to announce that Tŷ Pawb has made it on to the shortlist of an international award.
A global list of finalists
The Civic Trust Awards scheme was established in 1959 to recognise outstanding architecture, planning and design in the built environment.
The awards are designed to encourage the very best in architecture and environmental design, to improve the built environment for us all through design, sustainability, inclusiveness and accessibility, but also to reward projects that offer a positive cultural, social, economic or environmental benefit to their local communities.
Tŷ Pawb has been selected as one of the 147 Regional Finalists on a list which includes buildings from across the world, including London, Texas, Miami, Copenhagen and Cape Town!
Applicants will be notified on Monday 17 December whether their scheme has been successful at National Panel stage (and therefore a 2019 Winner). Fingers crossed!
A fantastic endorsement for Wrexham
Lead Member for People – Communities, Partnerships Public Protection and Community Safety, Cllr Hugh Jones said: “I’m delighted that Tŷ Pawb is continuing to gain recognition and popularity on the national and international stage. The bold yet community focused design of the building is a feature which has already gathered a lot of positive media attention.
“This award identifies sustainability, inclusiveness and positive impacts on the local community and economy as key factors for it’s finalists so it’s a fantastic endorsement for Tŷ Pawb to reach this stage and it’s great to see Wrexham named on this list. It’s something we can all be very proud of and it’s a testament to the enthusiasm and commitment of the staff there who have worked so hard in these first few months.”
