Forgotten Spaces Sheffield winners announced

The winners of the Forgotten Spaces Sheffield were announced on 26 September at a ceremony at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield. Attendees were invited to view the exhibition of shortlisted schemes, including models of the designs, before the awards were announced.


The first prize of £5000 was awarded to Chris Paterson for "Guiding Lights," a scheme that uses innovative smartphone technology to magically light up a dark footpath in Sheffield.
 Second prize of £2000 went to "Wicker Spice" by Oliver Peach.
 Third prize of £1000 went to Food for Thought by Doma Architects.
Judges also commended the following projects:

  • Life is a beach by Ark D M Team
  • Pigs, Bees & Bells by David Britch, Eamonn Canniffe, Stephen Martlew
  • Is the River Really Beautiful...? by John Harrison, Chantelle Stewart
  • The Coo-op by Evans Vettori Architects
  • Cuthbert Bank / Walkley Flying Club by Simon Gedye, Keith Hayman
The exhibition of all the shortlisted entries, including models of the designs, was on at The Crucible Theatre until Saturday 8 October. We have recently heard the exciting news that the exhibition is to be redisplayed at Parkhill, Sheffield in the coming weeks!
